One report on the analysis of essential oil of Tanacetum polycephalum Boiss. species has been published. Objective: Aim of this study is to determine the chemical composition of the hydrodistilled oil of Tanacetum pinnatum Boiss. of Iranian origin for the first time. Methods: The essential oil of T. pinnatum obtained by hydrodistillation and analyzed by GC and GC/MS. Results: The major constituents appeared to be camphor (23.2%), α-pinene (8.5%) and camphene (7.7%). Conclusion: In T. pinnatum we identified 25 components representing 98.7%.
