Abstract:
Achillea filipendulina L. was collected in full flowering stage from 3 different habitats in north-west of Iran. Essential oil of flowers was obtained using cellevenger apparatus and chemical composition were analyzed by GC and GC/MS and identified in comparison with authentic compounds. The objectives of this research were to describe the habitat conditions and to determine the chemical composition and the percent of essential oils in these three habitats and finding the effect of habitat on the yields of essential oils. The average yields of essential oils were to 0.53 v/w% and the major compounds in 3 habitats were: Santolina triene, α-pinene, Camphene, Ortho-cymene, 1, 8-cineole, Santolina alcohol, Pinocarvone, Borneol, Terpinen-4-ol, Bornyl acetate and Neryl acetate.
