ABSTRACT
The article analyzed the histo-anatomy of the vegetative organs of species Mentha longifolia (L.) Huds collected from Negre┼čti (Vaslui). On the surface of the vegetative organs was identified the presence of tectorial and secretory hairs. Volatile oil was extracted from the aerial parts of the plant using a Clevenger device, and with a GC-MS (Gas Chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry) there were identified the chemical compounds. It was recorded the presence of 25 chemical compounds, five of them representing 75.42% of the total obtained oil.
