Abstract

Water-distilled essential oils from the fruits of Lycium barbarum and L. ruthenicum were analyzed by GC-MS. The main components in the oil of L barbarum were found to be hexadecanoic acid (47.5%), linoleic acid (9.1%), beta-elemene (5.4%), myristic acid (4.2%), and ethyl hexadecanoate (4.0%). The essential oil of L. ruthenicum has heptacosane (14.3%), ethyl linoleate (10.0%), hexacosane (7.0%), nonacosane (6.2%), and ethyl hexadecanoate (5.8%) as the main compounds.
