Abstract

Volatile compounds of an alcoholic extract from flowers of Plumeria rubra L. var acutifolia were isolated by continuous liquid-liquid extraction with isopentane. The extract was analysed by HRGC and GC-MS techniques. A total of 27 compounds were identified, of which 16 are reported for the first time in this flower.
