    In the present study, fatty acid compositions, vitamin and sterol contents, flavonoid constituents and radical scavenging activity of extracts of the Artemisia species from Turkey (A. absinthium L., A. vulgaris L., A. austriaca Jacq., A. verlotiorum Lamotte and A. caucasica Willd.) are studied. Results of present study demonstrated that the main fatty acids in the extracts of Artemisia L. are determined as palmitic acid (C16:0; 7.1-25.9%), stearic acid (C18:0; 2.6-12.5%), palmitoleic acid (C16:1 n9; 1.3-13.1%), oleic acid (C18:1 n9; 1.5-20.3%), linoleic acid (C18:2 n6; 14.1-63.4%), docosadienoic acid (C22:2; 1.6-10.3%). Lipide-soluble vitamin contents of Artemisia L. species are found low concentrations. Also, it is determined that A. absinthium and A. vulgaris have rich in term of ergosterol content. Furthermore, it is showed that Artemisia L. species studied rich in flavonoid conten.. View More»
