Besides, despite the low concentration of hydrocarbon monoterpenes
(1.8%) and oxygenated monoterpenes
(1.2%) in the essential oil of P.
In fact, most of the compounds identified in the mint EO belong to the monoterpene
class, to which its antimicrobial effect can be attributed.

alkaloid and other constituents of Plumeria acutifolia, Planta Med., 74, 1749 (2008).
The reverse approach was used during the 1990s SOS campaigns to estimate isoprene and monoterpene
emissions using measured isoprene and monoterpene
concentrations combined with highly uncertain OH concentration estimates (Guenther et al.
Major selected monoterpenes
alpha-pinene and 1,8-cineole found in Salvia lavandulifolia (Spanish sage) essential oil as regulators of cellular redox balance.
Beside the concentration of monoterpene
hydrocarbons decreased in comparison to HD.
When grouping the components into different terpenoid types, there were found eight monoterpenes
hydrocarbons (MH), 17 oxygenated monoterpenes
(MO), 11 sesquiterpene hydrocarbons (SH), five oxygenated sesquiterpenes (SO), and one oxygenated diterpenes (DO).

Moreover, in our study of the in vitro chemotaxis assay, fMLP was used as a chemotactic agent which promoted neutrophil migration and citral reduced the leukocyte migration, suggesting an anti-inflammatory activity of this monoterpene
. These results were also correlated with a discrete lymphocytic infiltrate observed in citral-pretreated group obtained by histopathological observation of the liver.

Essential oils may contain antibacterial monoterpene
alcohols or phenylpropanes, stimulating monoterpene
hydrocarbons, calming esters or aldehydes, irritating phenols, stimulating ketones, anti-inflammatory sesquiterpene alcohols, antiallergenic sesquiterpene hydrocarbons, and expectorant oxides.
Background: Citronellal (CT) is a monoterpene
with antinociceptive acute effect.
