ESSENTIAL OIL COMPOSITION OF CHERVIL GROWING WILD IN HUNGARY

G. Petri, E. Lemberkovics, L. Lelik, GY. Vitányi
Authors investigated phytochemically the wild growing Anthriscus cerefolium var. trichosperma, Chervil.

They identified the main compounds with GC-MS technique, and studied their formation by different conditions and in different developing states.

Authors established that the esdragol (=methylchavicol) content is only in the full flowering state the dominant. The environmental conditions influence significantly the l-allyl 2,4 dimethoxybenzene and the undecan content. Interesting remark is that the dryed plantmaterial has a higher essential oil content than the fresh one.
