Two new esters of the new sesquiterpene alcohol juniferol — juniferin and juniferinin — have been isolated from the roots ofFerula juniperina. On the basis of the products of chemical transformations and spectral characteristics the structure of 2,5-dihydroxy-1,1,4,8-tetramethylcycloundeca-3,7-diene has been proposed for juniferol.

It has been shown that juniferin is 5-O-vanilloyljuniferol, and juniferinin is 2-O-acetyl-5-O-p-hydroxybenoyljuniferol.
