The stems of Fissistigma thorelii (Pierre ex Fin. & Gagnep.) Merr. collected from HaTinh province, Vietnam in May 2007 was isolated by steam distillation with oil yield of 0.1% and analyzed by Capillary GC and GC/MS. Thirty five components have been identified accounting for more than 93.1% of the oil. The major constituents of this oil appeared to be -terpinene (22.0). Less predominant constituents included β-phellandrene (7.3%), bicyclogermacrene (7.2%), (Z)--ocimene (6.4%), g-terpinene (6.0%), β-caryophyllene (6.0%), β-elemene (6.0%), p-cymene (5.9%), (E)-b-ocimene (4.8%), a-humulene (3.6%), eudesma-4 (14),11-diene (3.2%), d-3-carene (2.3%), germacrene D (2.3%), myrcene (2.2%), β-selinene (1.8%), a-phellandrene (1.6%), and germacrene A (1.6%). All the other components were in concentration of less than 0.1 - 0.9%.
