The biological activities and chemical constituents of the zahdi date palm variety volatile compositions were reported. The total volatile composition were 99.9% and seventeen compounds were identified. The major components of the essential oil were cyclododecane (66.97%), dodecane (5.05%), 1-eicosene (4.99%), 1-pentadecanol (4.75%) and 1-hexadecene (3.37%). The DPPH radical activity test appeared that fruits of date palm essential oil have high activity to reduce the DPPH radical with IC50 value 22.15±0.82µg/mL. The zahdi date palm volatile composition showed significant antibacterial activity against S. aureus, B. subtilis, E. coli and P. aeruginosa with the inhibition zones 11.8–7.6mm. Thus, the volatile composition could be observed as potential bioactive natural product for application in the pharmaceutical industry and cosmetic.
