Clearly, it can be seen that the volatiles are dominated by compound depicted as peak (3) assigned as eucalyptol accounting for about 60% of the total peak areas for 30 peaks integrated automatically using autointegration software.
In conclusion, based on the results of this study, it can be stated that dominant compounds in dry-cured loins were: aromatic hydrocarbon (toluene); alkanes (hexane, heptane, and 2,2,4-trimethylpentane); aldehyde (hexanal); alcohol (2-furanmethanol); ketone (3-hydroxy-2-butanone); phenol (guaiacol); and terpenes (eucalyptol, cymene, y-terpinen, and limonene).
When eucalyptol was used, filling remnants remained only in the coronal third.
The analysis of the P heptaphyllum essential oil by GC-MS led to the identification of the major constituents in both commercial and natural resins, limonene, eucalyptol, and p-cymene, whereas in the natural resin, the main components were limonene, p-cymene, and a-terpineol, with a yield of 1.38% and 0.90%, respectively.
For PC1 (30.78%), the variables that mostly influenced the separation of accessions based on volatile compounds were the presence of eucalyptol, alloaromadendren, and cadina-1(6),4-diene, with correlation values of 0.99, 0.98 and 0.98, respectively.
Chemical constituents of ginger classified to volatile oils (including borneol, camphene, citral, eucalyptol, linalool, phenllandrene, zingiberine and zingiberolpenols (gingerol, zingerone and shogaol) and resin) which constitutes (1-3%) mainly of zingeberene nonvolatile pungent compounds oleo-resin constitutes (4-7.5%) mainly gigerols and other constituents with more than 50% of starch [63,65].
The main active component is "cineole," also called eucalyptol, and many do not list how potent or dull their oil is.

Zerumbone (75.2%), [alpha]-caryophyllene (7.1%), camphene (5.1%), eucalyptol (2.4%), and camphor (3.0%) were the major components of the oil were identified in oil samples by Kovat analysis and comparison of mass spectra with those reported in the NIST mass spectra database (Supplementary Fig.

The results showed that the main components were 1,5-hexadien-3-yne (91.30%), eucalyptol (1.43%), 3methylbut-2-enoic acid, 3,5-dimethylphenyl ester (7.26%).
