Water-distilled oils from herbal parts of Thymus leucostomus var. gypsaceus and T. pubescens var. cratericola were analyzed by GC/MS. Forty-seven compounds representing 99.9% of the former oil were identified with thymol (33.2%) and borneol (22.2%) as main constituents. Carvacrol (17.5%), β-cymene (l6.4%) and thymol (10.8%) were the major constituents of the latter oil among the 75 constituents characterized which represented 99% of the oil. © 1999, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
