Chamoli "Studies on Chemical Composition and Antifungal activity of essential Oil of Ocimum gratissimum L. growing wildly in Chamba (Tehri Garhwal) Uttrakhand, India" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-2 | Issue-1, December 2017, pp.679-685, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd6978.pdf

Essential oil obtained from aerial parts of Ocimum gratissimum collected from Chamba (Tehri Garhwal), Uttrakhand, India by hydrodistillation, was analyzed by GC and GC-MS for its chemical profile, and evaluated for antifungal activity. The analysis revealed the presence of 35 compounds which constitutes 96.27% of the total oil. The major components of the oil were found to be eugenol (32.86%), a-terpenolene (22.83%), cis-8-methylbicyclo (4,3,0) non-3-ene (9.08%), camphene (2.65%), a-phellandrene (2.12%), a-pinene(1.56%), ß-bourbonene (1.46%), ß-pinene (1.36%), carophyllene (1.32%), dodecatetraene (1.23%), 3-cyclohexen-1-ol (1.15%) and tert-butylbenzene (1.02%),. The essential oil exhibited good antimicrobial activity against few human pathogenic fungi.
