Abstract

Essential oil was extracted from the flower, leaf and stem of Aquilegia olympica by hydrodistillation and analyzed by GC-FID and GC-MS. A total of 64, 40 and 52 compounds were identified, constituting over 88.4, 87.3 and 95.3% of oil composition of the flower, leaf and stem of A. olympica, respectively. Oxygenated monoterpes were shown to be the main group of terpenoid constituents in the ratio of 9.9, 33.6 and 32.1%, respectively. But, the major components of the oils of A. olympica were linalool (6.5, 10.7 and 23.1%) and palmitic acid (20.1, 26.3 and 10.5%, respectively).
