Chrysanthemums have a wide range of applications such as efficient drugs for various diseases in traditional medicinal field, healthy herbal tea in food processing, hardy blooms in gardening, and indoor air pollution control in environmental monitoring. In addition to the above appearance, aroma and color of the Chrysanthemums are the main attractive features to researchers. Aroma plays a vital role in determination of quality and market price of Chrysanthemums.  Traditional medicines from these plants have promising properties in improving liver function, decreasing inflammation. These perennial flowering plants are commonly available in Asia, northeastern Europe and most species originate from East Asia1,2. According to the literature survey more varieties of Chrysanthemums are mainly cultivated in china such as Shen-nong Sweet Chrysanthemum, Tender Huang-ju, Chamomile Flower, Hangzhou White Chrysanthemum, Florists Chrysanthemum, etc3-5. Chrysanthemum plants belong to Asteraceae family which has low molecular components include flavonoids6, sesquiterpenes7, triterpenes8, and unsaturated fatty acids9. The volatile chemical compounds of Chrysanthemum essential oil are mainly composed of monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, aldehydes, acids, esters and alcohols 10-12. Recently, some researchers have paid more attention to characterize the aroma compounds of flowers and essential oils. Xia et al.,13 used GC–MS to analyze the volatile chemical composition from Chrysanthemum. C.morifolium is a most widely used hardy variety, available in many colours which are a better choice for gardens.

Phytochemicals of Chrysanthemum spp

Phytochemicals are biologically active chemical compounds which are derived from plants. They have many health benefits for humans further than those attributed to macronutrients and micronutrients. They play a key role to protect plants from pathogenic infections and damage. Plants have different types of phytochemicals such as Phenolic Acids, Flavonoids and Lignans which contribute to the plant’s color, aroma and flavor. Phytochemicals accumulation takes place in different parts of the plants, such as roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds14. More than 4,000 phytochemicals have been cataloged15 and are classified by protective function, physical characteristics and chemical characteristics16. From the survey of more than 80 research papers it is estimated that About 150 phytochemicals have been studied in detail. Chrysanthemum spp. Leaf contains octa-cosyl alcohol, β-sitosterol, lupeol, α-amyrin, daucosterol, ineupatorolide B, syringin, chlorogenic acid, petasiphenol, physcion, acacetin, eupatilin, quercetin, diosmetin, luteolin, apigenin, apigenin- 7-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, quercetin-3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, luteolin-7-O-β-D-gluco pyranoside, apigenin-7-O-β-D- neospheroside, and acacetin-7-O-β-D-glucoside. Most of the Chrysanthemum spp flowers contain anthocyanins, cyanidin 3-glucoside and cyanidin 3-(3″-malonoyl) glucoside and carotenoids: lutein, zeaxanthin, β-cryptoxanthin, 13-cis-β-carotene, α-carotene, trans-β-carotene, and 9-cis-β-carotene. The major volatile compounds present in the plants are camphor, α-pinene, chrysanthenone, safranal, myrcene, eucalyptol, 2,4,5,6,7,7ab-hexahydro-1H-indene, verbenone, β-phellandrene and camphene. Recent studies reported by several researchers about phytochemicals found in leaves, flower and essential oil from Chrysanthemum spp are showed in table 1.
