Abstract: The volatile composition of Mangifera indica var. coquinho has been studied. The essential oils were obtained by hydrodistillation in a modified Clevenger-type apparatus, and their analyses were performed by GC-FID and GC/MS. A total of 19 different compounds were identified. Sesquiterpene hydrocarbons were shown to be the main group of constituents of all taxa. The main constituents of the oil were alpha-gurjunene (24.0%), beta-selinene (24.0%), beta-caryophyllene (11.2%), alpha-humulene (7.2%), caryophyllene oxide (5.5%) and humulene epoxide (2.4%). The cytotoxic activity of the oil was more pronounced than antioxidant and antimicrobial activities.
