The essential oil of different parts of Ferulago campestris (Bess.) collected in Sicily has beenextracted by microwave-assisted hydrodistillation (MAHD) and by classic hydrodistillation(HD). A comparative qualitative–quantitative study on the composition of the oils wascarried out. A total of 100 compounds were identified in the oils obtained by MAHD,whereas 88 compounds characterized the HD oils. The most prominent componentswere, in all different parts of F. campestris and in both extraction methods, 2,4,5-trimethylbenzaldehydeand 2,4,6-trimethylbenzaldehyde isomers; the latter was not previouslyfound. The attempt to evaluate where the oil components are located in all parts of theplant was carried out by means of a kinetic study. Then, electron microscopy observationon the different parts before and after MAHD and HD was performed.
