The aim of this research is to identify rootstock that can synthesize the maximum level of oxygenated compounds. Peel oil was extracted using mechanical presses and eluted using n-hexane. Finally compounds were analyzed using GC-FID and GC-MS. Twenty-four, Twenty-seven and twenty-six compounds were identified in Trifoliate orange, Orlando tangelo and Murcott rootstocks, respectively Limonene (% 92.55 to 93.09) and myrcene (%1.59 to %1.70) were the main compounds. Among the three rootstocks studied, Orlando tangelo demonstrated the maximum level of oxygenated compounds. As a result of our research, we can express that the rootstocks can affect the amount of oxygenated compounds.
