Lysimachia parvifolia Hemsl. belongs to the Primulaceae family and is widely distributed in Yunnan, Guizhou, Hunan, Jiangxi, and Zhejiang Provinces in China. It is used as traditional chinese medicine to promote blood circulation clear away heat and toxic material, to relieve cough and asthma, to promote diuresis, and to expel stone [1].

Phytochemical research has shown that the main compounds in plants of Lysimachia genus are flavonoids and triterpenoid saponins. L. pentapetala, L. clethroides, and L. paridiformis contain essential oil [2, 3, 4]. Pharmacological investigations have shown that plants of Lysimachia have antitumor, bacteriostatic, anthelminthic, and antioxidation activities [5, 6, 7, 8]. No research has so far been conducted concerning the chemical composition and pharmacological activity of L. parvifolia. In order to identify the volatiles in the flowers of L. parvifolia, we report on their essential oils using the HS-SPME technique, which was subsequently supplemented...
