There are about 10 known species of Comarum L. around the world, which are spread over the northern hemisphere temperate zone, and two of the 10 known species are widespread over China. They are Comarum salesovianum (Stephan) Asch. et Graebn. and C. palustre L. [1]. C. salesovianum is widespread over hills, valleys, and river Banks of 3600–4000 m above sea level of Inner Mongolia, Ningxia, Gansu, Qinghai, Xinjiang, and Tibet. The synonym of it is Comarum salesovii (Stephan ex Willd.) Bunge. It has been found to be poisonous to sheep in Xinjiang [2]. The plant has often been used to treat eye infections in Pakistan and India [3]. Previous studies have reported that the extract from C. salesovianum, obtained using water or alcohol, exhibits antibacterial activity to 15 mm or more diameter in the growth zone of Staphylococcus [4], while studies of the activity of the essential oil of C. salesovianumhave not been found. The goals of this study were to analyze the chemical composition and...
