The essential oil components of arils from seeds of Strelitzia nicolai were investigated by GC and GC-MS. The oil yields of dried arils obtained by hydrodistillation were 0.86 %. Twenty-five compounds representing 94.2 % of the S. nicolai aril oil were identified. The main chemical constituents belongs to alcohols (1.24 %), amides (3.14 %), amine (31.75 %), aromatic compounds (4.86 %), esters (0.65 %), ethers (28.18 %), hydrocarbons (5.13 %) and ketones (19.30 %).
