Essential oils of New Zealand Podocarpaceae. II. Podocarpus spicatus






J. appl. Chem, 10: 8, 340-4

Essential oils of New Zealand Podocarpaceae. II. Podocarpus spicatus

Samples of P. spicallis essential oil from different parts of New Zealand are compared and shown to differ only in the terpene alcohol and diterpene constituents. The compounds identified in the oil are alpha-pinene, myrcene, alpha-terpinene, beta-phellandrene, dipentene, gamma-terpinene, p-cymene, alpha-terpineol, aromadendrene, a selinene, cadinene, and kaurene or phyllocladene. The substance known as 'gamma-podocarpene' is a diterpene alcohol.
