Ferocin and ferocinin — esters of the new sesquiterpene alcohol fecerol with p-hydroxybenzoic and vanillic acids, respectively — have been isolated from the roots ofFerula ceratophylla.

On the basis of spectral characteristics and chemical transformations, the structure of 1,1,8-trimethylcycloundeca-2,4(14),7-trien-10-ol is proposed for fecerol.
