A previously unknown component has been isolated from the oleoresin turpentine ofPinus sylvestris L. It has been established by chemical and spectral methods that it is 3,7,7-trimethylcyclohepta-1,3,5-triene. It has been shown by the GLC method that this hydrocarbon is present in all the main types of turpentines in amounts of from 0.1 to 0.7%.
