THE PLANT WITH ESSENTIAL OIL CONTAINING LINALOOL IN VIETNAMAbstract
Linalool is the first ingredient to synthesize many other substances of higher value for the pharmaceutical and fragrance industry; therefore, finding sources of essential oils containing Linalool is an important and necessary task. The purpose of this study is to investigate Linalool of plants containing essential oil in Vietnam to extract Linalool sources for the pharmaceutical and fragrance industry. By the method of fresh sampling of essential oil plants in Vietnam, essential oils are extracted by steam distillation and then analyze on high-resolution chromatography (HRGC) to search for Linalool sources. We have found that some areas with a lot of plants containing high Linalool content grow concentrated wild in forests as Coriandrum sativum Linn., Homalomena occulta (Lour.) Schoot, Cinnamomum parthenoxylon Meissn, and some of them can be planned to cultivate the essential oil source to obtain Linalool for the pharmaceutical and aromatic industry. During the survey, we discovered and made a list of 21 plants with essential oil containing Linalool in Vietnam.
