The essential oils of Nepeta nuda L. ssp. nuda obtained by hydrodistillation using neo-Clevenger extractor have been analysed and characterized by capillary GC-FT-IR systems. Eucalyptol was the most abundant component of N. nuda oils in different percentages: chemotype Basarabi (34,8%), Frasinei (44,87%), and Herculane (31,9%). Nepetalactone isomers were found in all ecotypes in various amounts due to ecological conditions, analytical method and plant phenophase.
