- n. A levorotatory, viscid liquid, C10H18O, prepared by the dehydration of terpin hydrate. It solidifies at —50° C, melts at 33° C., and boils at 218° C.
- n. The term formerly used to designate a mixture of isomeric alcohols, C10H17OH.
Greek sage (S. fruticosa) has more cineole, while clary sage (S. sclarea) is very different,with a tea-like quality and floral and sweet notes from a number of other terpenes (linalool, geraniol, terpineol).
Styrolene has an odour very much resembling hyacinth, and probably forms the basis of most of these preparations, together with terpineol, and other artificial bodies.
This oil consists mainly of linalol, together with small quantities of methyl heptenone, geraniol, and d-terpineol.
This process gives accurate results with geraniol, borneol, and menthol, but with linalol and terpineol the figures obtained are only comparative, a considerable quantity of these alcohols being decomposed during the acetylation.
The oil contains some 90 per cent. limonene, together with nonyl alcohol, d-linalol, d-terpineol, citral, citronellal, decyl aldehyde, and methyl anthranilate.
The balsamic odors (chiefly aldehydes, Rimmel's jasmin, violet, and balsamic series, with the chemical types: terpineol, ionone, vanillin).
