Metabolite Identification
Common NameL-Citronellol
DescriptionL-Citronellol is found in herbs and spices, as well as bilberry. L-Citronellol is a constituent of geranium and citronella oils, and is obtained mainly from geranium oil or synthetically. Citronellol occurs in many essential oils, usually as a partial racemate. It is used as a flavour in citrus compositions. Citronellol, or dihydrogeraniol, is a natural acyclic monoterpenoid. Both enantiomers occur in nature. L-Citronellol is found in the oils of rose (18-55%) and Pelargonium geraniums. (Wikipedia)
