Abstract: The chemical compounds present in the essential oil obtained from the flowers of Leea indica (Burm. f.) Merr. were analyzed by GC-MS technique. More than 95% of the oil consisted of the esters of phthalic acid. Di-isobutylphthalate (>75%), di-n-butylphthalate (>7%), n-butylisobutylphthalate (>6%), butylisohexylphthalate (>3.5%) were identified as major constituents of the essential oil. Monobutyl carbonotrithioate, a sulphur compound was also identified in trace amount (0.01%). The essential oil showed moderate antibacterial activity against three Gram positive and two Gram negative bacteria and three pathogenic fungi.
