Abstract

The scarcity of natural populations of Anibarosaeodora in Brazil is well known and it has been attributed to the over-exploitation for extraction of its trunk wood essential oil for perfumery industry. The leaves of cultivated trees of this species could be a new source for future sustainable exploitation for the same purpose. Leaf oils from 35 trees of A. rosaeodora (“paurosaâ€) obtained by hydrodistillation were analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. High variation in yields (1.15% to 4.21%) and in linalool content (38.48% to 71.05%) were observed. Additionally, leaf oils of A. parviflora (“macacaporangaâ€), commonly confused as A. rosaeodorawere analized. Linalool was the major compound in A. parviflora essential oils, but in considerable smaller amount (21.30% and 12.64%) when compared to A. rosaeodora. Anibaparviflora oils were different from those of A. rosaeodora, showing a high amount of β- phellandrene (21.06% and 23.60%), and lacking the presence of α-, β- and γ-eudesmol, and 7- epi-α- and 10-epi-γ-eudesmol.
