Artemisia genus is an important medicinal plant in Iran. The present study was undertaken to identify the chemical components of Artemisia aucheri Boiss. in Iran. The flowers and leaves of plant collected from Isfahan province (Golpayegan) and they were analyzed by using GC/MS. The 13, 15 compounds were identified in dried flowers and leaves, respectively. The major components in flowers were: Camphene (31.047%), β-Myrcene (26.774%), Camphor (15.41%), 1,8-Cineole (11.348%). The major components in leaves were: ,8-Cineole (22.847%), Camphor (20.799%), Camphene (17.342%), α-Pinene (13.455%). In conclusion, this result showed that Artemisia aucheri might possess potential secondary metabolites that may be useful for treating a variety of diseases.
