The monotypic genus Turczaninowia DC. (Asteraceae = Compositae) was separated by Augustin De Candolle (DC.) from the genus Aster in 1836. The eastern Asian species Turczaninowia fastigiata (Fisch.) DC. (= Aster fastigiatus Fisch.) grows in eastern Siberia (Dauria), southern Russian Far East (Primorsky Krai, south of Khabarovsk Krai, southeast of Amur Region), Mongolia, northeastern China, Korea, and Japan. It is a biennial plant that inhabits grassy valley meadows and gentle mountain slopes and flowers from July to September .
Flavonoids were observed previously in the aerial part of T. fastigiata . To the best of our knowledge, the composition of essential oil from this plant has not been studied.
Raw material for the study was collected during flowering on Aug. 10, 2016, in the vicinity of Turii Rog, Khankaiskii District, Primorsky Krai (Russia), in a grassy dry meadow. Specimens of the plants are preserved in the herbarium of the Chemotaxonomy Laboratory, PIBOCh, FEB, RAS...
