The purpose of this work is to explore the chemical variability of essential oils of leaves Tetraclinis articulata (Vahl) originating in five localities distributed within the Moroccan Tetraclinis. A significant variation is observed between the outputs according to the forest source of the samples going from 0, 22% to 0, 84%. The chemical composition shows a notable quantitative variation in particular between the majority compounds mainly α-pinene, camphor, bornyl acetate and borneol, without however being able to define distinct chemical races.
