The genus Salvia (Lamiaceae) is represented in Turkey by 89 species, of which 45 are endemic. The essential oils obtained by hydrodistillation from different Salvia spp. were analysed by GC-MS. Enantiomeric separation of some constituents in these oils were determined by MD-GC-MS. alpha-Pinene, beta-pinene, camphor, limonene, linalool and borneol, mainly contained in Salvia oils, were investigated for their enantiomeric distributions.
