Oil from Iris rhizomes is widely used in perfumery, cosmetology, and medicine owing to its regenerative and bactericidal properties [1]. The chemical compositions of essential oils from rhizomes of I. medwedewii and I. carthaliniae (Iridaceae) have not been previously studied. I. carthaliniae Fomin and I. medwedewii Fomin are perennials with thick creeping rhizomes. They are indigenous to several Azerbaijan districts (Lankaran, Masally, Agdash, Terter) in littoral marshes, moist locations, and bottoms (I. carthaliniae) and also along dry rocky slopes in the middle belt of Diabara mountains (I. medwedewii) and in the Low Caucasus Mountains (Shakhbuz, Julfa, Gek-Gel, Dashkesan) [2].

The goal of the present work was to study the constituent composition of essential oil from rhizomes of I. medwedewii and I. carthaliniae of the Azerbaijan flora. Rhizomes of both species were collected in May 2014 in Gosmalyan and Pirasora, Lerik District, and of I. carthaliniaein Masally District during...
