dc.description.abstract The essential oil content, determined via hydrodistillation using Clevenger apparatus, of the leaves of Eucalyptus camaldulensis collected from single location in the garden of the International university of Africa(IUA) (Khartoum area) was found to be (1.6%). The identification of the oil constituents and their percentage composition were investigated using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS) analysis. 34 constituents were identified in the oil of E.camaldulensis. The composition of the major constituent of the essential oil of the E.camaldulensis was found to be rich in eucalyptol (72.95%). the minor constituents in the oil were Alpha-pinene (6.34%), D-lemonene (4.46%), 2(10)-pinen-3-ol (3.17%), p-cymene (2.79%). The essential oils obtained were tested for their biological activities namely antimicrobial activity. Against bacteria (E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhi, Klebsiella pneumoniae.) and fungals (Candida albicans and Aspergillusniger). en_US
