Abstract The essential oils of the fruits and the leaves of pistachio Pistacia vera L. were analyzed by GC and GC-MS. Fresh unripe pistachio fruits were richer in essential oil 0.5 %, w-w than the leaves 0.1 %, w-w. Twenty one compounds were identified in the essential oil of the fruits and the major components were +-α-pinene 54.6 % and terpinolene 31.2 %. The enantiomeric ratio of the major constituents of the essential oil of the fruits was determined using chiral GC-MS and it was found that the +-α-pinene ratio was 99.5:0.5, +-limonene 80:20, +-β-pinene 96:4, and +-α-terpineol 0:100. Thirty three compounds were identified in the essential oil of the leaves and the major components were found to be α-pinene 30.0 %, terpinolene 17.6 % and bornyl acetate 11.3 %. View Full-Text
