[en] This study deals with the valorisation of medicinal and aromatic plants of the Algerian flora, in order to find new bioactive natural products. Myrtus communis essential oil obtained by hydrodistillation was investigated by capillary gas chromatography and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. Twenty-seven volatile compounds were identified in the leaves essential oil; the major components were: -pinene (23.5 %), limonene (22.9 %), 1,8-cineole (16.1 %), linalool (13.0%), linalyl acetate (10.9%) and geranyl acetate (4.6%). The antibacterial activity of essential oils extracts was evaluated by the diffusion method and by the dilution method in liquid medium on pathogenic bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Salmonella sp, Proteus sp and Klebsiella sp).
