The alkanes n-triacontane and n-hentriacontane, 2,3-dimethoxy-p-cymene, chrysanthanone, 2,4,5-trimethoxyallylbenzene, methyl 5-isopropyl-2-methylcyclopentenecarboxylate, and caryophyllene oxide have been isolated from the essential oil ofBlumea mollis by chromatographic methods. The identities of these terpenoids have been established by physicochemical and spectral methods.
