The essential oils obtained by hydrodistillation of Geranium purpureum and G. phaeum were characterized by GC‐FID and GC/MS analyses (the former for the first time in general). In total, 154 constituents were identified, accounting for 89.0–95.8% of the detected GC peak areas. The investigated essential oils consisted mainly of fatty acids and fatty‐acid‐derived compounds (45.4–81.3%), with hexadecanoic acid and (E)‐phytol as the major components. The chemotaxonomic significance of the… 
Chemical Composition of Volatiles of Eight Geranium L. Species from Vlasina Plateau (South Eastern Serbia)
TLDR
Investigation and compare chemical composition of volatile fractions obtained by hydrodistillation from aerial parts of G. macrorrhizum and G. phaeum and cluster analysis revealed separation of volatiles into two main groups, contributing to the knowledge on the chemistry of this genus and advances theknowledge on flora of southeast Serbia.
Essential Oil Profile, Phenolic Content and Antioxidant Activity of Geranium kikianum
TLDR
This work presents the first phytochemical investigation of Geranium kikianum Kit Tan & G. Vold (Geraniaceae), a species endemic to the southern Peloponnese, Greece, isolated by hydrodistillation and its chemical composition characterized by GC-MS.
Chemical composition and antioxidant activity of Geranium macrorrhizum in relation to ploidy level and environmental conditions
TLDR
The total phenolic content, as well as the radical scavenging activity of residual water remaining after hydrodistillation of G. macrorrhizum, is related to the plant ploidy level, however, the essential oil composition clearly depends on environmental factors.
PHYTOCHEMICAL PROFILE OF TWO CULTIVATED PELARGONIUM ( GERANIACEAE ) SPECIES
The current study is part of a broader research that evaluated the chemical and biological properties of some Pelargonium species cultivated in Romania. The selected samples, P. hispidum and P.
Phytochemical and Micromorphological Characterization of Croatian Populations of Erodium cicutarium
The aim of this study included the phytochemical screening of extracts and essential oil of Erodium cicutarium (L.) L’Hér. ex Aiton (Geraniaceae), a native traditional medicinal plant from Croatia,
Essential‐Oil Constituents and Alkanes of Cephalaria ambrosioides Roem. & Schult. (Family Caprifoliaceae, Subfamily Dipsacaceae) and (Chemo)taxonomic Discernment of the Subfamilies Dipsacaceae and Morinaceae
TLDR
Essential‐oil compositional data of selected plant species belonging to the Dipsacaceae and Morinaceae subfamilies were used to resolve taxonomical ambiguities regarding the genus Cephalaria and its infrageneric relations, especially concerning the subfamilyMorinaceae.

Geranium macrorrhizum L. (Geraniaceae) Essential Oil: A Potent Agent Against Bacillus subtilis
TLDR
It is determined that germacrone, the major constituent of the oil from aerial parts, was not the sole agent responsible for the observed activity, and the oils consisted mainly of sesquiterpenoids.
A Comparative Study on Essential Oils of Geranium macrorrhizum L. and Geranium phaeum L., Geraniaceae from Serbia
TLDR
The main constituent of G. macrorrhizum oil was identified as germacrone (37.4% of total oil), while in G. phaeum oil piperitone (12.3%) could be designated as the most prominent one.

TLDR
The chemistry of the volatiles of eight Teucrium taxa from Serbia and Montenegro were compared using multivariate statistical analysis, and this provided chemotaxonomically important conclusions.
Chemotypification of Astrantia major L. (Apiaceae): Essential‐Oil and Lignan Profiles of Fruits
TLDR
The fruit essential oils of two populations of Astrantia major L. (Apiaceae) were analyzed in detail and the lignan profiles supported the existence of at least two A. major chemotypes, and the chemotaxonomical usefulness of such chemical data in differentiating taxa from these two Apiaceae subfamilies was assessed.
A ‘Low‐Level’ Chemotaxonomic Analysis of the Plant Family Apiaceae: The Case of Scandix balansae Reut. ex Boiss. (Tribe Scandiceae)
TLDR
MVA demonstrated that the evolution of the volatiles' metabolism of Scandiceae taxa was neither genera‐specific nor follows their morphological evolution, and possible applicability of the essential oils' compositional data in the taxonomy of Apiaceae was explored.
Fatty Acid Derived Compounds – the Dominant Volatile Class of the Essential Oil Poor Sonchus Arvensis Subsp. Uliginosus (Bieb.) Nyman
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that the main volatiles of essential oil poor species are fatty acid- and carotenoid derived compounds, while essential oil rich taxa are generally characterized by the specific production of mono- and sesquiterpenoids, and/or phenylpropanoids.
