Abstract: This study focused on the physico-chemical characterization of Schinus terebinthifolius RADDI leaves and seeds essential oils and the evaluation of their antioxidant activity. Several volatiles components were identified by GC-MS. The major compound detected in leaves and fruits essential oils, was bicyclogermacrene (35.58 % and 23.56 %, respectively). Schinus terebinthifolius fruits essential oil showed lower total phenolic and flavonoids content but higher antiradical activity than the leaves one. This antioxidant activity characterizing Schinus terebinthifolius essential oils was high enough to consider the plant as a new and natural source of antioxidants.


Keywords: Schinus terebinthifolius, essential oil, GC-MS, total phenolic content, antioxidant activity
