O. Theanphong,* T. Songsak and W. Mingvanish


The essential oil was extracted from the fresh leaf of Citrus medica L. var. sarcodactylis (Rutaceae) using steam distillation technique. Chemical composition of essential oil was identified by GC-MS technique. The major constituents were limonene (49.19%), geranial (25.93%) and neral (16.41%). Essential oil was tested for in vitro antimicrobial activity using agar diffusion method. It exhibited a significant antimicrobial activity against S. aureus, and B. subtilis with the same minimum inhibitory concentration of 2,500 ppm.
