GLC-MS of the essential oil of A. odoratissima root bark revealed the presence of 2-pentanone, n-hexane, β-caryophyllene, longifolene and other sesquiterpenes. The oil was found to possess antimicrobial and anthelmintic activities in vitro and showed CNS depressant action on mice, on the basis of its effect on pentobarbitone induced hypnosis, motor coordination and spontaneous activity.
