Abstract:
In the plant kingdom, some plant species are named aromatic on account of the volatile compounds that they contain, which confer an odor and a characteristic flavor to them. Aromatic plants have been mentioned in the Antiquity for their uses as medicinal plants, pot herb spices, and were also used to embalm the dead. Today, they are used in industry, particularly in cosmetics, perfumery, and as detergents as well as in the aromatic food industry. Besides these activities, a new field is developing: the use of these volatiles in insect pest management. In fact, one of the volatile fractions of aromatic plants, viz. the essential oils has a promising development in this field. These essential oils are also the most commonly used for industrial applications. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007. All rights reserved.
