The hydrodistillated essential oils from leaves and fruits of Ecballium elaterium were analysed by GC-MS. Octyl octanoate (30.0%), 3-(6,6- dimethyl-5-oxohept-2-enyl)-cyclohexanone (20.4%) and hexahydro farnesyl acetone (19.1%) were the main components among 21 constituents characterised in the leaf oil. Twenty-one compounds...
