Abstract Share this page

The essential oils of the aerial parts of Thymus schimperi growing in two different localities of Ethiopia were analysed using GC, GC-MS, 1H- and 13C-NMR data. T. schimperi oil from plant material collected in Dinshu (Bale Province) was found to contain thymol (50%), γ-terpinene (12.1%), carvacrol (10.1%) and p-cymene (10.0%) as the major constituents whereas carvacrol (66.2%) and γ-terpinene (13.2%) were shown to dominate in the same species obtained from Addis Ababa. Thymol (48.6%) and γ-terpinene (19.8%) were the major constituents of T. vulgaris oil acclimatized in Wondo Genet, Ethiopia.
