[en] The volatile components isolated from flowers of Anthemis mauritiana have been studied. The
essential oil was obtained by hydrodistillation and by micro steam distillation and analysis were performed by GC/MS. The main constituents of the essential oil obtained by both methods were α-pinene, β-pinene, β-myrcene, γ-terpinene respectively by hydrodistillation and micro steam distillation.
The essential oil obtained by hydrodistillation was also subjected to screening for its possible
antioxidant activity by using 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) assay. The best result was obtained at a dose of 100μg/ml with an inhibition of 37.80 ± 0.24 %, this activity was less effective than the synthetic BHT with 56.59 ± 0.43% at the same dose.
