The composition of the essential oil isolated under production conditions from the woody verdure ofLarix sibirica Lbd. growing in the Krasnoyarsk district has been studied. The bulk of the essential oil is composed of monoterpenes (84.95%). Among the sesquiterpene hydrocarbons α-murolene, β-humulene, and caryophyllene are present in considerable amounts. The sesquiterpene alcohol δ-cadinol has been detected. α-Murolene, γ-murolene, and longifolene have been isolated from the essential oil in the chromatographically pure state by column and preparative thin-layer chromatography.
