In this study, the extractive substances of Hedera helix L. (forest ivy) wood and bark, naturally found around Filyos Stream in the Çaycuma district of Zonguldak, were investigated, for both ground-creeping individuals and for those clinging to Oriental plane (Platanus orientalis L.). The samples taken from the wood and bark of the plants were compared. According to the results of wood hexane experiments, linoleic acid (26.98%) was the most abundant in normal wood samples. In the same

In acetone:water (95:5,v:v) extract experiments on wood, the penetrating ivy wood contained the greatest amount of α-D-glucopyranoside (58.47%). Based on acetone:water (95:5,v:v) experiments on bark samples, sucrose (35.94%) had the highest content in normal bark.
