The essential oil obtained by hydrodistillation of aerial parts of Ruta chalepensis subsp. angustifolia (Rutaceae) was analyzed by GC and GC/MS. 16 compounds were characterized representing 99.99% of the essential oil with 2- acetoxytetradecane (58.44%), 2-acetoxytridecane (19.07%) and 2-tridecanone (6.39%) as major components. The antibacterial activity of the essential oil was tested against 5 gram-positive and 4 gram-negative bacteria by the use of the disc diffusion method
