Abstract

The fatty acid compositions of Nepeta viscida, N. cilicica, N. crinita, N. nuda ssp. glandulifera and N. aristata were analyzed by GC/MS. The main free fatty acids were found as linolenic acid (49.8 - 58.5%), linoleic acid (10.9 - 23.5%), oleic acid (11.5 - 19.2%), palmitic acid (5.2 - 6.8%) and stearic acid (2.0 - 3.7%) and, total fatty acid compositions of species were analyzed and results were found as 36.2 - 49.8%, 17.1 - 25.8%, 15.4 - 25.8%, 6.4 - 7.8%, and 2.7 - 4.1%, respectively.
