Abstract

Hypericum is one of nine genera forming the family Hypericaceae distributed mainly in temperate regions and tropical mountains. Fresh aerial parts of H. laricifolium Juss. collected by the Piñango road, Mérida state, at 3900 m above sea level, yielded 1.2 mL (0.24% w/v) of essential oil by hydrodistillation. GC and CG/MS analysis showed the presence of 21 components being α-pinene (20.2%), verticiol (13.4%), 3-methyl-nonane (12.3%), 2-methyl-octane (9.6%) and nonane (7.6%) in major proportions. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report on the chemical composition of the Hypericum laricifolium essential oil.
