abstract: the essential oil obtained from the leaves of piper affinis hispidinervum C. DC
was analysed by GC- MS. sixteen substances were identified, corresponding to 98.9% of the
oil. the major component (74.3%) was sarisan (1-allyl-2-methoxy-4,5-methylenedioxybenzene),
identified by NMR spectroscopy. safrole (18.4%) was also found in the oil.
