The purpose of this study was to determine the chemical and physical properties of samples of propolis collected from apiaries in Genç, Karlıova and Solhan districts of Bingöl Province, which is important in the beekeeping sector in Turkey. In the experiment, fatty acids and derivatives of the propolis samples were analysed with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS) analysis techniques. As a result, 10 fatty acids and 49 volatile components were detected in these samples. These results will contribute to the standardization of propolis produced in Bingöl, Turkey, and to future studies on determining the chemical composition of propolis
