Abstract

Extractives compose 5-10 % of wood by weight and they have important roles in trees. Extractive composition of different plant species has to be investigated in order to get the broadest sense. Thus, hexane and acetone: water (95:5, v:v) extracts of Arbutus andrachne and Platanus orientalis wood were analysed by GC-MS and GC-FID to determine lipophilic and hydrophilic extractive composition of these species. Total amount of lipophilic extractives was found 3,39 mg/g in A. andrachne wood, whereas it was determined as 16,91 mg/g in P. orientalis wood. However, total amount of hydrophilic extractives in A. andrachne had higher values. Fatty acids were detected as the dominant group in lipophilic extractives in both wood species. Acid 18:3 in A. andrachne wood (0,17 mg/g) and acid 16:0 in P. orientalis wood (0,19 mg/g) were determined as the highest fatty acids.
