Fruit flesh of Artocarpus heterophyllus Lam grown in Hainan island was used as the raw material to extract volatile oil with steam distillation, ether extraction or resin adsorption and analyze chemical composition of the obtained volatile oils by GC-MS. Totally 38, 22 and 14 peaks were detected respectively in the above 3 volatile oils, among which 37, 21 and 13 compounds were identified respectively, representing 99.47%, 99.36% and 99.63% of total peak area. Totally 5 compounds, i.e., butyl acetate, propyl valerate, butyl butyrate, 3-methyl-butyl butyrate and 9-octadecenoic acid, were present simultaneously in the 3 oils.

Key words: Artocarpus heterophyllus Lam, volatile oil, GC-MS
