The main focus of the present investigation is to distinguish Lebanon’s cedar from other kinds of cedars. The essential wood oil, which was obtained by hydro-distillation from the heart wood of Cedrus libani and Cedrus atlantica, was analyzed by GC/MS. Fourteen components were identified, among which α-, β-, γ-isomers of himachalene and himachalol (75%) were predominant. Smaller amounts of the (E) and (Z) isomers of α-, β- and γ-atlantone were also presents.
