The flavour volatile constituents of seed cotyledons, fruits and leaves of Murraya koenigii L. (curry leaf plant), grown in Hyderabad, India, were analysed by GC-MS and compared with curry leaf flavour constituents. These consist of monoterpene hydrocarbons, oxygenated monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes. The major constituents of curry leaf are monoterpenes (70%); seed cotyledons (86%), constituting -pinene (52%) and cis-ß-ocimene (34%); raw fruit oil containing monoterpenes (80%) and oxygenated monoterpenes (4.8%); and fruit pulp oil containing monoterpenes (61%). The present findings constitute the first report of volatile constituents of parts of Murraya koenigii L. other than the leaves.
