A. Nassir- Ahraadi . A. Rustaiyan, A.R. Jassbi


The composition of the essential oil from the leaves and flowers of "Artemisia haussknechtii Boiss growing wild in the north-west of Iran, was investigated by GC and GC/MS.
The main components of the volatile oil were 1,8 - cineol (16.5%), camphor (14.1%). artemisia ketone (10.5%), fragranol (9.0%), Yomogi alcohol (7.5%) and B- pinene (5.4%). The total contribution of these compounds to the oil amounted to 63.0%.
Monoterpens and sesquiterpenes represent 90.08% and 1.52% of the oil respectively. Of the twenty oxygen-containing monoterpenes which made up a fairly large fraction of the terpenoid composition, the predominant components were 1,8 - cineole and camphor.
