© 2021, Badebio Biotechnololgy Ltd. All rights reserved.The genus Artedia L. (Apiaceae) is represented in Turkey by 485 species and altogether 511 taxa. The rate of species endemism in Turkey is 37.7%. The plant material was collected from the province of Kahramanmaraş, Turkey. The essential oils from fruits and aerial parts were obtained by hydrodistillation using a Clevenger type apparatus. Chemical compositions of the oils were analysed using the GC-FID and GC-MS techniques. The main components of fruits oil were characterized as 1-octadecanol (16.4%), hexadecanoic acid (16.2%), 1-hexadecanol (6.0%), spathulenol (5.5%), caryophyllene oxide (5.0%), bicyclogermacrene (4.1%) and dillapiol (3.0%). Major compounds of the oil from aerial parts were determined as α-pinene (39.0%), sabinene (36.0%) and terpinen-4-ol (3.2%).
