Abstract
Proximate composition of Carum gracile. Lindl seeds and the physico-chemica l characteristics of the volatile oils were determined. CC-MS analysis of t he essential oil showed the presence of 31 constituents of which 22 compoun ds are reported for the first time, p-cymene (15.06%), gamma -terpinene (28 .95%), cuminaldehyde (16.59%), p-menth-1, 3-dien-7-al (10.89%), p-menth-1, 4-dien-7-al (9.51%), beta -pinene (4.84%) and limonene (3.90%) were the maj or compounds. The yield of the volatile oil was 2.18% and that of the oleor esin was 8.66%, when extracted on a large scale. The oleoresin was found to keep well in cold (8-10 degreesC) for 60 days even without the addition of antioxidants.
