Abstract:
Thymus linearis Benth. was collected from Faculty of Forestry, Benhama, Watlar, Ganderbal, SKUAST-Kashmir during the summer season. The hydro-distilled essential oil was analysed by gas chromatography (GC) and gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS). A total of 15 constituents, representing % of the total oil composition, were identified. Some major components found were thymol, p-cymene, α-terpinene and ϒ-terpinene. Also significant amounts of carvacrol, borneol, terpinen-4-ol and thymyl methyl ether were found present in this essential oil. The presence of high phenol and essential oil contents in this species make it a suitable substitute for common thyme oil.
