Physiochemical and nutritional characterization of Vitex payos (Lour.) Merr. (Verbenaceae): An indigenous fruit tree of Eastern Africa

In the dry areas, indigenous fruits become important staples when cereals harvested are inadequate to support populations. Farmers in these areas have identified many of the handicaps in domestication but there is still need for inputs from the food industry into identification of the desirable traits and characteristics of potentially novel food. The purpose of this study was to assess the nutrient content of one...

Chemical composition of the essential oil from Ziziphora clinopodioids Lam. from Iran by means of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS)

The essential oil from aerial parts of Ziziphora clinopodioids plant was extracted by hydro distillation with efficiency of 1.86% (w/w). The components were characterized by means of gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC/MS) using kovat's retention indices. Thirty-two components of the essential oil which composed 98.18% of the total oil were characterized. The major components were pulegone...
