Volatiles of Thymus serpyllum L. were obtained by hydrodistillation (HD), simultaneous hydrodistillation, and extraction (SDE) and static headspace gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis (head space [HS]), respectively. Monoterpenes were the most dominant in all 3 techniques (84.8%-94.2%). Essential oil profiles obtained by HD and SDE were similar, with oxygenated monoterpenes being the most abundant (up to 75.4%). In HS volatiles of T. serpyllum monoterpene hydrocarbons strongly dominated (94.2%). The main compounds were alpha-terpinyl acetate (HD and SDE) and myrcene (HS).
