1. The following compounds have been isolated by gas-liquid chromatography from the essential oil ofArtemisia rutifolia Steph. ex Spreng. growing in the Mongolian People's Republic and have been identified by their IR spectra: 1,8-cineole (35%), α-thujone andβ-thujone (11%), (+)-camphor (18%), (−)-α-terpineol (5%), and (−)-terpinen-4-ol (7%). By analytical gas chromatography α-pinene,β-pinene, camphene, limonene,β-phellandrene, and p-cymene have been identified in the hydrocarbon fraction.
It has been shown that apart from compounds of a terpene nature the oil contains 4-phenylbutan-2-one, (±)-4-phenyl-butan-2-ol, and (±)-4-phenylbut-2-yl acetate. This is the first time that (±)-4-phenylbutan-2-ol and its acetate has been found in plant material.
