Study of the Volatile Compounds in Artemisia Sagebrush from Iran using HS/SPME/GC/MS

A. Nezhadali and M. Parsa

Abstract—The aerial parts of Artemisia Sagebrush were collected in August 2010 from Damavand ( Tehran Province of Iran ). It is air dried in a shadow place. A headspace solid-phase micro-extraction (HS-SPME) method followed by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC/MS) was used for the analysis of volatile compounds in the leaves of Artemisia Sagebrush. The dried plant was powdered and the aroma compounds of a 0.05g were isolated by HS-SPME fiber in 15 min. The chemical compounds of plant were investigated by gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC/MS). The oven temperature of GC was programmed between 60-250°C using DB-5 column. A total of 51 constituents, representing more than 96% of the volatiles were identified. The main compounds, were isobornyl acetate (19.56%) , eucalyptol (14.81%), (+) trans- chrysanthenyl acetate (12.76%), α- cubene (9.70%), borneol (9.06%), caryophyllene (7.03%), camphor (6.83%), γ-elemene (2.16%), umbellul one (1.73%) and copaene (1.37%). This herbal medicine traditionally uses as anti infectious, anti- bacterial, gastric tonic, digestive and stomachic in Iran. Consequently, this fast and simple method can be used for the analysis of the volatile compounds emitted from Artemisia Sagebrush.
