Medicinal plants are valuable natural resources that nowadays noticed by developed countries of the world and are considered as the raw materials for becoming harmless medicines for human beings. One of these valuable species is the Cionura erecta shrub, distributed in a limited area of our country. The aim of this study is to investigate the chemical composition of the essential oil of this species. For this purpose, samples from leaf, stem and fruit were collected from Chahar-tagh region of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province and essence were extracted by Clevenger machine. In order to identify the essential oil composition, the gas chromatograph (GC) and gas chromatograph attached to mass spectrometer (GC-MS) were used to compare the inhibitory and mass spectrometry indices. In this study, 23 compounds were identified, among which Alpha murolene, Cedron-9-one and Eugenol were the most effective essential oils. Quantitative and qualitative differences in the essential oil composition of this area with other natural habitats of this shrub can be from differences in ecological characteristics such as moisture, altitude, soil factors, geography, sampling season and organ used in the extraction process. Also, the results of this study showed that this species has a high potential of mineral elements including: zinc, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, copper, sodium, and zinc compared to other types of self-generate in the Zagros region.
