Volatile oil components of common daisy (Bellis perennis L.)
Common daisy is herbaceous perennial plant from Asteraceae family that grows throughout Ukraine and cultivated as an ornamental garden plant. Common daisy herb has an expectorant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and choleretic properties. The main aim of our work was to study and compare chemical composition of volatile components of cultivated and wild-grown common daisy herb.
The objects of our research were wild common daisy herb and cultivated common daisy herb.
For the first time by chromatography mass spectroscopy technique the identification of volatile oil components of wild and cultivated common daisy herb was done and quantitative content of essential oil components was set. 54 components were found in wild common daisy herb and 47 are identified. In cultivated common daisy herb all 28 essential oil substances were identified. Similar components for both objects are geraniol, geraniol acetate, γ-hymachalene, hexahydropharnezyl acetone, palmitic acid, eicosane, phytol, pentacosane, heptacosane, nonacosane, untriacontane.
It is set that cultivated and wild common daisy have individual features in the content of volatile substances due to the place of their growth.
