Abstract

A steam-distilled commercial by available essential oils of Cymbopogon afronardus (Mutete) were analyzed by GC and GC/MS. Seventy-four compounds making up 95.1% of A and 59 compounds making up 86.4% of B were characterized. Myrcene (3.3-38.9%) and intermedeol (11.2-16.9%) were identified as major constituents.
