GC-MS analysis and antimicrobial activity of the essential oil of the trunk exudates from pistacia atlantica kurdica

Sharifi, Mohammad Sharif and Hazell, Stuart Loyd (2011) GC-MS analysis and antimicrobial activity of the essential oil of the trunk exudates from pistacia atlantica kurdica. Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research, 3 (8). pp. 1364-1367. ISSN 0975-1459


The volatile oil from the crude gum of Kurdica, from Pistacia atlantica Kurdica, was isolated by hydrodistillation and analyzed through a combination of gas chromatography (GC-FID) and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The essential oil formed 20% of the weight of the crude gum. The major constituent was α-Pinene. The extracted essential oil was then screened for antimicrobial activity against 9 strain of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) and some other Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, the MIC values ranged 500-1000 mg/mL.
