Abstract: The chemical composition of the essential oil obtained from the leaves and roots of Senecio rufinervis DC. was analyzed by GC, GC/MS and NMR. Germacrene D was the major constituent in both the oils studied (40.19 and 24.95%, respectively). The antimicrobial activity of the oil was determined by disc diffusion method. Results showed that both the oils exhibited significant antibacterial activity.
