Abstract

The needle oils of Pinus sylvestris L were analyzed by GC and GC-MS. The results showed some qualitative and quantitative variations. Forty-three components were identified in the oils of P. sylvestris. All the samples of essential oils contained alpha-pinene, camphene, and beta-pinene as major constituents. Chemical variations of P. sylvestris samples were discussed.
