DOI 10.1007/s10600-018-2418-8 Chemistry of Natural Compounds, Vol. 54, No. 3, May, 2018 CHEMICAL COMPOSITION AND ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY OF THE ESSENTIAL OIL FROM Salvia kiangsiensis Shi-Ping Fang, Xiang Xing, Peng-Xiang Lai, and Jian-Jun Huang* Salvia kiangsiensis C. Y. Wu is an annual herb that is native to Fujian, Hunan, and Jiangxi Provinces in China, growing in valleys and forests. S. kiangsiensis typically reaches a height of 45 cm, occasionally taller. Inflorescences are 2–6 flowered widely spaced verticillasters in axillary or terminal racemes or panicles, with a 1.2 cm purple corolla . The essential oil compositions of S. kiangsiensis have not been previously investigated. Herein we report for the first time the chemical composition of essential oils from the fresh aerial parts of S. kiangsiensis and evaluate its antioxidant activity by the 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging assay. The fresh leaves and small twigs of S. kiangsiensis were collected from Fengxin, Jiangxi Province of China in August 2016. The plant was identified by Associate Prof. Hong Zhao of Marine College, Shandong University (Weihai). A voucher specimen (No. 10439) was deposited in the Laboratory of Botany of Marine College, Shandong University (Weihai). The fresh plant material (500 g) was hydrodistilled for 5 h
