The essential oil of Pulicaria glutinosa Jaub. was examined by GC and GC/MS. The oil was characterized by its high proportion of sesquiterpenes. Of the 37 components detected, the most abundant were β-elemene (11.8–16.4%), τ-cadinol (12.4–14.2%) and α-cadinol (8.4–10.5%). Minor differences were detected between the oils isolated from samples collected in different years.
