Abdel Karim M.*, Solima I. and Weam A.K.

ABSTRACT

Prunus mahaleb L.(Mahaleb) is a perennial tree reaching about 2-10m in height in the family Rosaceae. Different parts of the plant have been used traditionally against many human disorders. In this study the oil from Prunus mahaleb was studied by GC-MS and the antimicrobial activity was evaluated. The GC-MS analysis showed forty constituents. Major constituents are esters of: 9- octadecenoic acid (36.80%), 9,12-octadecadienoic acid (25.87%) and hexadecanoic acid (7.91%). In the cup plate agar diffusion assay, Prunus mahaleb oil showed partial activity against Staphylococcus aureus. It also exhibited partial anticandidal potency.
