ABSTRACT:
The essential oil of Artemisia dracunculus L. from plant growing in Dhanolti region, Tehri Garhwal, Uttarakhand, India, obtained by hydro distillation method in a Clevenger type apparatus was investigated by GC and GC/MS. The main components were Geranyl acetate (50.4%), Cetronellol acetate (26.0%), -Cadene (6.1%), Geraniol (4.2%), (E) - -Bisabolene (2.1%), -Muurolene (1.7%) and d-Cadinene (1.6%), 100% of the total oil. Essential oil was subjected to the Physico-Chemical evaluation and furthermore, the essential oil was evaluated for antibacterial and antifungal activities. The activity was more pronounced against fungal organisms than against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria
