Abstract
This work aimed to study the chemical composition of essential oils and floral waters of Cymbopogon citratu s (DC.) Stapf (Poaceae) from Senegal. The plants were collected in two different localities, Dakar and Kaolack. The extracts were obtained by steam distillation from both fresh and dried plants and analyses carried out by GC/FID and GC/MS. Oils from Dakar were dominated by geranial which represented 46.0-43.9%, neral 31.8-31.0%, myrcene 10.8-11.7% and geraniol 2.7-4.2% in the fresh and dried plants, respectively. Their floral waters contained mainly 44.6-41.4% geranial, 39.7-35.6% neral and 8.8-13.2% geraniol. The oils from Kaolack were characterized by ge...
