The essentials oils and antimicrobial activity of four Nepeta species from Morocco

The chemical composition of essential oils (EO) isolated from four Nepeta species (Nepeta atlantica Ball, Nepeta tuberosa L. subsp reticulata (Desf.) Maire,Nepeta cataria L., Nepeta granatensis Boiss) were characterized and the antibacterial activity tested. Chemical analyses indicated that the major component of these EO was the sterioisomere 4a-, 7-, 7a--nepetalactonewhich...
