Headspace volatiles of fresh flowers of Stenbergia candida Mathew et Baytop (Amaryllidaceae) and Muscari muscarimi Medikus (Liliaceae), and crushed bulbs of Nectaroscordum siculum (Ucria) Lindl. (Liliaceae) were analyzed by gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry. The volatiles were trapped by SPME in a dynamic headspace set up. Stenbergia flowers red-Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), blue-Polydimethylsiloxane/Divinylbenzene (PDMS/DVB) and black-Carhoxen/Polydimethylsiloxane (CAR / PDMS) fibers were used. (E)-beta-ocimene (50-81%) and nerol (2-19%) were found as main components. Volatiles of Muscari muscarimi were trapped by blue SPME fiber over a period of three days. Main components were identified as (E)-beta-ocimene (t-36%), methyl salicylate (1-21%), E-methyl isoeugenol (4-22%) and benzyl benzoate (7-56%). Volatiles of crushed bulbs of Nectaroscordum siculum were trapped on an HS-SPME (Red fiber). Only two components were found to be dibutyl disulfide (88.5%) and 2-hexyl-5-methyl-(2H)-furan-3-one (11.5%).
