Calliandra haematocephala Hassk., belonging to the Leguminosae family, is distributed in tropical and subtropical areas and is also widely cultivated in Taiwan, Hainan, and Guangdong in China [1].

Research has revealed that 20 galloylated flavonol glycosides have been isolated from the leaves and stems of C. haematocephala, which exhibits moderate to strong radical scavenging properties on lipid peroxidation, hydroxyl radical, superoxide anion generation, and DPPH radical [2]. At present phytochemical and biological research on C. haematocephala is scanty. There is no research on the volatile components of C. haematocephala. In this paper we study the volatiles of the flowers, stems, and leaves of C. haematocephala using headspace solid-phase microextraction (HS-SPME) coupled with gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) techniques for the first time.

The flowers, stems, and leaves of C. haematocephalawere collected from Wanning, Hainan Province, China in July 2013 and identified...
