Özet

Aerial parts of Tanacetum cilicicum were hydrodistillated for 3 h using Clevenger. Essential oil (EO) yield was 0.4% (v/w). According to the GC/MS analyses, EO of T. cilicicum consisted of monoterpenes [alpha-pinene (2.95 +/- 0.19%), sabinene (2.32 +/- 0.11%), and limonene (3.17 +/- 0.25)], oxygenated monoterpenes [eucalyptol (5.08 +/- 0.32%), camphor (3.53 +/- 0.27%), linalool (7.01 +/- 0.32%),alpha-terpineol (3.13 +/- 0.23%), and borneol (4.21 +/- 0.17%)], and sesquiterpenes [sesquisabinene hydrate (6.88 +/- 0.41%), nerolidol (4.90 +/- 0.33%),alpha-muurolol (4.57% alpha 0.35), spathulanol (2.98 alpha 0.12%), juniper camphor (2.68 alpha 0.19%), (-)-caryophyllene oxide (2.64 +/- 0.19%), 8-hydroxylinalool (2.62 +/- 0.15%), and A-cadinene (2.48 +/- 0.16%)]. In the antimicrobial assay, MIC/MBC values of the EO were the most significant on B. subtilis (0.39/0.78 mu L/mL) and B. cereus (0.78/1.56 mu L/mL). The most prominent phytotoxic activities of the EO were observed on L. sativa, L. sativum, and P. oleracea. The results of the present study indicated that EO of T. cilicicum includes various medicinally and industrially crucial phytoconstituents that could be in use for industrial applications. The finding of this study is the first report on this species from the East Mediterranean region.
