ABSTRACT


The aim of this study was to assess variation of the chemical composition of essential oils obtained from inflorescences and leaves of Tilia platyphyllos Scop. collected from five different localities in Kosovo. GC-MS/GC-FID analysis revealed the presence of 96 compounds in essential oils obtained from inflorescences of large-leaved lime with the most prominent classes including hydrocarbons, with the respective concentrations in flowers and leaves of 41.7% - 46.2% and 27.5% - 36.8%, respectively, oxygenated sesquiterpenes (12.2%-23.0% and 21.3% -31.2%, in flowers and leaves, respectively) and  fatty acids and their derivatives (8.0% - 19.6% and 18.1% – 23.1% in flowers and leaves, respectively) whereas monoterpenes were present in smaller amount. Experimental data showed that large-leaved lime is reach in different groups of volatile compounds, and this species could be further recommended for food and medicinal application.
