- The flowers of Polianthes species were collected in the Thai Nguyen city, Viet Nam. Their volatile oil extracts were obtained via supercritical CO ₂ extraction and chemical compositions of the volatile oil part were subsequently analysed by GC-FID and GC/MS systems. Some major chemical compositions of volatile oil were identified as methyl 2-amino benzoate, isoeugenol, 1-Eicosene, indole, 5-octadecene, benzylbenzoate, diisobutylphthalate, 1-nonadecene, trans -farnesol. The chemical compositions of volatile oil of Polianthes sessiliflora (P. sessiliflora) and Polianthes longiflora (P. longiflora) species were being reported for the first time.The activities of total volatile oil extract of the Polianthes genus flowers against HeLa, A459, and Hep-2 cancer cell lines were evaluated.
