The essential oil of fresh flowers of Plumeria obtusa L. collected in Brunei Darussalam was isolated by hydrodistillation and examined by GC-MS. Forty-seven components were identified, representing 97% of the oil, with benzyl salicylate (39%), benzyl benzoate (11%), (2E, 6E)-farnesol (8%) and (E)-nerolidol (5%) as major constituents. The remaining identified constituents of the oil (34%) were found as minor constituents (less than or equal to 3%). Copyright (C) 1999 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
