The essential oil from inflorescences of Artemisia alba Turra (Compositae) was analysed by GLC; 33 different components were detected, 21 of which were identified by GC-MS. The composition of the extract changes with environmental and climatic conditions of the sites of collection (Adriatic area-NE Italy). Artemisia alba produces mainly sesquiterpene hydrocarbons when growing in thermophytic plant communities and mostly oxygenated monoterpenes in mesophytic plant communities. The results of ordination and cluster analysis performed on chemical data allowed the identification of four chemical types of A. alba.

Abstract

The essential oil from inflorescences of Artemisia alba Turra (Compositae) was analysed by GLC; 33 different components were detected, 21 of which were identified by GC-MS. The composition of the extract changes with environmental and climatic conditions of the sites of collection (Adriatic area-NE Italy). Artemisia alba produces mainly sesquiterpene hydrocarbons when growing in thermophytic plant communities and mostly oxygenated monoterpenes in mesophytic plant communities. The results of ordination and cluster analysis performed on chemical data allowed the identification of four chemical types of A. alba.
