Constituents of Hydrodistillate of Cleome Gynandra L. of Indian Origin

Author(s): S. B. Paul and S. Roy

In view of reported anti-pest properties of the strongly smelling Indian medicinal herb Cleome gynandra L (Cleomaceae), hydrodistillate from its aerial parts was analysed by GC and GC-MS. The present study reveals 12 minor constituents, the major (56.4%) being 1,2-benzene dicarboxylic acid diisooctyl ester. Qualitatively and quantitatively, the result is distinctly different from that reported for the Nairobi sample. Such difference might be due to eco-geographical difference of the areas concerned or due to genotypic variation of the species being compared.
