Abstract:

Thunbergol is a monocyclic diterpene alcohol which occurs in the oleoresin of Douglas fir, Pseudotsuga menziesii Mirb. Franco. Spectroscopic studies and dehydration to thunbergene cembrene established the structure 1-isopropyl-4,8,12-trimethyl-2,7,11-cycloteradecatriene-4-o1 of thunbergol which is thus a new member of the diterpene series containing a fourteen-membered ring. The possible relationships between thunbergol and cembrol previously isolated from Pinus sibirica R. Mayr. are discussed. Author
