The volatile fractions of the petroleum ether extract and of the alkaloid extract of Haplophyllum myrtifolium Boiss., endemic to Turkey, were trapped by using the Solid Phase Micro Extraction (SPME) technique and analyzed by GC/MS. Forty-seven compounds were characterized from the petroleum ether extract of the aerial parts with beta-caryophyllene (14.6 %), decane (11.4 %), and beta-phellandrene (7.0 %) as the major components. Chavibetol (21.9 %), eugenol (19.1 %), methyleugenol (10.8 %), trans-linalool oxide (7.1 %) and beta-cyclocitral (6.0 %) were identified as the major components among the forty-two compounds characterized in the chloroform eluate of the alkaloid extract.
