|Abstract: ||The essential oils distilled from rhizomes and in vitro whole plants of Kaempferia galanga were analyzed by GC-MS. Thirty nine compounds were identified in both oils. The most abundant compounds present in the rhizome oil were two esters viz, ethyl p-methoxy cinnamate (46.8 %) and ethyl cinnamate (24.8 %), and a hydrocarbon n-pentadecane (5.8 %). Essential oil of in vitro whole plants possessed higher percentage of ethyl p-methoxy cinnamate (51.2 %) when compared to rhizome oil. Other prominent compounds present were 1,8–cineole, α-gurjunene, γ-cadinene and β-sinensal. Both the oils exhibited qualitative similarities with minor differences in the percentage of constituent compounds.|
