Viburnum odoratissimum Ker Gawl belongs to the Caprifoliaceae family and is distributed in China . The leaves, bark, and roots of V. odoratissimum are also called Zaoheshu in Chinese. Phytochemical research shows that sesquiterpene glycosides, iridoids, iridoid glycosides, diterpenes, triterpenoids, flavonoids, flavonoid glycosides, lignans, phenylpropanoid glycosides and phenolic compounds have been isolated from V. odoratissimum [2, 3, 4, 5, 6]. Pharmacological investigations show that V. odoratissimum has cytotoxicity  and antibacterial activity . No research has so far been conducted concerning the volatiles in flowers.
Here for the first time we report on the volatiles of flowers from V. odoratissimum using the HS-SPME technique of extraction, and subsequently analyzed them by GC-MS.
The flowers of V. odoratissimumwere collected from Kaifeng of Henan Province in China in May 2011. They were identified by Assoc. Prof. Changqian Li. A voucher specimen (20110521) is...
