Phytochemical investigation of the aerial parts of Foeniculum vulgare Mill led to isolation of two compounds from chloroform extract: graveolone 1 and 1-p-Menthene-3,6-diol 2 and two compounds from butanolic extract: Hexane-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexol (L-Iditol) 3 and Isorhamnetin-3-O- β-glucoside 4 by the use of different chromatographic techniques. Structure elucidation of these compounds was achieved by UV, NMR spectroscopy: 1H, 13C-NMR,HMBC, EI-MS spectrometry and X-rays.
