Constituents of pyrolytic products obtained from gum resin of boswellia carteri birdw. (Incense “Aden”)

Abstract

The pyrolytic products obtained from Incense “Aden” (gum resin ofBoswellia carteri Birdw.) were separated byGirard-P reagent. Prefractionation of the carbonylic portion was achieved by column chromatography on silica gel by gradient-elution. Subsequent GLC/MS-analysis of the resulting fractions allowed the identification of following substances: α-campholenaldehyde, cuminaldehyde, carvotacetone, phellandral,o-methylacetophenone, carvone, perilla-aldehyde, eucarvone, l-acetyl-4-isopropenylcyclopentene, piperitone, nopinone, cryptone, verbenone, γ-campholenaldehyde, thujone, myrtenoic acid,p-menth-4-en-3-one, 3,6,6-trimethylnorpinan-2-one, myrtenal, 2,4-dimethylacetophenone, pinocamphone or isopinocamphone, isopropylidencyclohexane, α-amyrenone (2) and ll-keto-α-amyrenone (4).
