Abstract

The hydro-distillation of the dried aerial parts of Meconopsis simplicifolia yielded essential oil (0.4 % v/w). The GC-FID coupled with GC-MS analysis detected at least 41 constituents of the chromatographable fraction of the total injected oil with bisabolene (29.2 %) as the major constituents of the oil. Strong antimalarial, moderate anti-inflammatory and weak antibacterial activities reported for the crude extracts and the alkaloids of this plant are also discussed.
