Abstract:
The oils and extract obtained by water distillation, and by cold extraction with dichloromethane from Jatropha elliptica rhizomes were analyzed by GC and GC/MS. The plant rhizomes were collected from the "cerrado" of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. delta-Selinene (35.7%) was found to be the major component in the oil and extract.
