The object of this study was determination of the content and composition of the essential oil of the fruits of three varieties of stalk celery – Helios, Zefir, and Orient. We also investigated hexane extracts obtained from the fruits of two varieties of stalk celery – Helios and Zefir. The essential oils and the extracts were examined by TLC and GC–MS.

Analysis showed the presence of terpene (mono- and sesquiterpene) and non-terpene (phthalide) fractions in the oils and extracts investigated. The combined amount of limonene, α- and β-pinene and myrcene in the monoterpene fraction of the essential oils ranged from 79.1 to 82.9%. The amount of the sesquiterpene fraction (α-and β-selinene) was from 15.7% to 18.8%. The phthalide fraction (3-n-butylphthalide, dehydrosedanolide, and sedanolide) was found in trace amounts. The amounts of these fractions in the hexane extracts ranged from 40.2 to 43.6% for the monoterpene fraction, from 19.4 to 20.7% for the sesquiterpene fraction, and from 35.7 to 37.7% for the phthalide fraction.
