  • Abstract

    The present study reports the extraction of essential oil from leaf and rhizome of a commercially important cultivar of Curcuma longa L. (cv. Suroma) of south eastern ghat of Orissa using hydro-distillation and identification of its constituents through gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The essential oil from fresh rhizomes showed ar-tumerone (49.76%) as a principal constituent. However, essential oil from leaf showed alpha-phellandrene (57.8%) as a major constituent.
