The chemical composition of plants genus Artemisia, representatives of the natural flora of the Lake Elton region, was studied. The aboveground part of the studied species is characterized by a high accumulation of Na. The pool of free amino acids (AA) of the plants studied was characterized by an increased proline concentration. The fatty acids (FA) ratio ω3/ω6 of the lipid fraction was between 1.5 and 2.3. The highest content of phenolic compounds, flavonoids and carotenoids was found for A. santonica. The antiradical activity of alcoholic extracts decreased as follows: A. santonica > A. pauciflora > A. lerchiana. The yield of essential oil from Artemisia species was 0.18-0.33% of dry weight (DW). The main components of essential oils of A. lerchiana and A. pauciflora were camphor, isoborneol and 1,8-cineol terpinen-4-ol. The results of this study indicate that the three species examined: A. santonica, A. pauciflora and A. lerchiana – could be used as a raw material for the production of valuable biologically active substances.
