Description: The antifungal activities of three supercritical CO2 (SCC) extracted cedar oils, Port-Orford-cedar (POC) (Chamaecyparis lawsoniana), Alaska yellow cedar (AYC) (Chamaecyparis nootkatensis), and Eastern red cedar (ERC) (Juniperus virginiana L), were evaluated against two common wood decay fungi, brown-rot fungi (Gloeophyllum trabeum) and white-rot fungi (Trametes versicolor). The statistical analysis showed that SCC extracted cedar oils had higher antifungal activities othan hexane Soxhlet extracted cedar oils against both white-rot fungi and brown-rot fungi. In vitro studies showed that AYC oils showed the strongest antifungal activity among the three cedar wood oils, followed by POC oil and ERC oil.
