The essential oil from leaves of Pistacia lentiscus L., an aromatic member of three Pistacia (Pistacia Vera L.) cultivars, including Kalle Ghoochi, Akbari, and Sefid that were analyzed by GC-MS. These Pistacia species have been collected from Khorasan Razavi, Iran. Constituents were identified by their mass spectra and Kovats’ indices. Pistacia1,8-cineole, α-pinene, β-pinene, β-thujene, and limonene were found to be the major constituents.

In this study the chemical composition of the essential oil extracted from leaves of Lippiacitriodora (Verbenaceae) grown under greenhouse conditions in mazandaran, Iran. The essential oil was obtained by hydro-distillation method using Clevenger apparatus. The oil was analyzed by GC and GC-MS. Thirty-four compounds were identified. The main constituents of the oils in this method were sabinene (1.34%), 6 methyl-5heptene-2one (3.46%), D-limonene (5.81%), 1,8-Cineole (2.51%), trans-beta ocimene (1.17%), Alpha terpineol (1.75%), neral (12.6%), geranial(15.07%), geranial acetate (1.15%), caryophyllene (4.02), D-germacrene (3.52), alpha-curcumene (4.17%), bicyclogermacrene (3.42%), nerolidol (1.59%), spathulenol (4.40%) caryophyllene oxide (2.04%), alpha-cadinol (1.06%).In our study citral was also identified at high percentages.
