Abstract

GRESSLER, Vanessa; FUJII, Mutue T.; COLEPICOLO, Pio  and  PINTO, Ernani. Characterization of volatile composition of Laurencia dendroidea by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Rev. bras. farmacogn. [online]. 2012, vol.22, n.4, pp. 805-813.  Epub May 29, 2012. ISSN 0102-695X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-695X2012005000069.

In this study we report the characterization of the volatile compounds of Laurencia dendroidea. Solvent extracts (dichloromethane and methanol), hydrodistillation extracts and headspace solid-phase microextraction samples were obtained and analyzed by GC-MS. Forty-six volatile components were identified in L. dendroidea, among them hydrocarbons, alcohols, phenols, aldehydes, ketones, acids, esters and terpenes.

Keywords : Laurencia dentroidea; hydrodistillation; HS-SPME; solvent extracts; volatile compounds; GC-MS.
