The composition of the volatile compoents of the oleoresin ofAbies alba Mill, has been studied. In this oleoresin 19 monoterpene compounds have been identified, the main ones of which are α- and β-pinenes and limonene. Among the 24 sesquitepene compounds identified in the oleoresin, 4 new terpenoids have been found: 10S,11S-himachala-2,3-diene, 10S,11S-himachala-3(12),4-diene, humula-4,9-dien-8-ol, and 4S,5S,10S-selin-6-en-4-ol. For the first time, α, β, and γ-himachalenes, 9-epicaryophyllene, intermedeol, and longiborneol have been found in the oleoresins of conifers of the genus Albies. A distinguishing feature of firs of the Albae series is the low content of oxygen-containing monoterpenoids and of sesquiterpenoids of the bisabolane series.
