2013), and its effect was attributed to the presence of pulegone
The monoterpene like pulegone
is of economic importance and extremely used in pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food, confectionary and beverage industries [22, 50].
For food flavorings, the only class of compounds with usage restrictions by regulatory bodies to some of its constituents is the extraction solvent class, where the agaric acid, aloin, beta-azarone, berberine, coumarin, hydrocyanic acid, hypericin, pulegone
, quassine, safrole and isosafrole, santonin and tuyona alpha and beta have maximum tolerable limits discriminated in documents (Brasil, 1999; Brasil, 2007).
while the monoterpene pulegone
and the alkaloids tomatine and solamargine have been found in Capsicum and Solanum species, as compounds with insecticidal and antifungal properties (Guntner et al.
Some studies have described a high production of essential oil by its leaves, with pulegone
as major component (Ribeiro et al.
zeamais, and the major component was pulegone
with participation of 56.
, 1,8-cineole, thymol, carvacrol, p-cymene and limonene as major compounds of the essential oil of Z.
clinopodioides are: Pulegone
, Iso menthone, menthol, menthone 1,8-cineole, thymol, pcymene, carvacrol, terpinen-4-01 and Linalool (Kivanc and Akguel, 1986; Baser et al.
Menthone, menthol, pulegone
, menthofuran, and other terpenes have been found to be principal constituents of Mentha longifolia (L.
piperitae (Menary, 1980) discuses factors that favor the maintenance of high levels of photosynthesis that resultes in high concentrations of menthone and low concentrations of pulegone
and menthofuran [Figure 1]
