The present study reports the results of Gas Chromatographic-Mass spectrometry (GC/MS) analyses of Angelica archangelica L. (Apiaceae) roots essential oil, as well as its in vitro antifungal activity against ten plant pathogenic fungi. Moreover, the essential oil was evaluated for its antifungal activity using the agar dilution method, and also MICs (minimum inhibithory concentrations) and MFCs (minimum fungicidal concentrations) were determined. The major compounds identified by GC-MS were α-pinene (21.3%), δ-3-carene(16.5%), limonene (16.4%) and α-phellandrene (8.7%). The oil showed in vitro antifungal activity against some species of the Fusarium genus, Botrytis cinerea, and Alternaria solani. Our study indicates that the oil of A. archangelica could be used as a control agent for plant pathogenic fungi in natural formulations.

Abstract

The present study reports the results of Gas Chromatographic-Mass spectrometry (GC/MS) analyses of Angelica archangelica L. (Apiaceae) roots essential oil, as well as its in vitro antifungal activity against ten plant pathogenic fungi. Moreover, the essential oil was evaluated for its antifungal activity using the agar dilution method, and also MICs (minimum inhibithory concentrations) and MFCs (minimum fungicidal concentrations) were determined. The major compounds identified by GC-MS were α-pinene (21.3%), δ-3-carene(16.5%), limonene (16.4%) and α-phellandrene (8.7%). The oil showed in vitro antifungal activity against some species of the Fusarium genus, Botrytis cinerea, and Alternaria solani. Our study indicates that the oil of A. archangelica could be used as a control agent for plant pathogenic fungi in natural formulations.
