The water-distilled essential oil of Scaligeria lazica, an endemic species in Turkey, was determined by GC and GC/MS. Thirty-six constituents representing 92% of the oil were identified with (E)-anethole (49.67%) as the major component. In the hexane extract of the aqueous distillate from which the oil was separated, 2-hydroxy-5-methoxy-benzaldehyde (21.51%) and phenylacetaldehyde (14.40%) were found to be the major components. © 1993 Allured Publishing Corp.
