Chemical Taxonomy
DescriptionThis compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as cedrane and isocedrane sesquiterpenoids. These are sesquiternoids with a structure based on the cedrane or the isocedrane skeleton. Cedrane is a tricyclic molecules a 3,6,8,8-tetramethyl-1H-3a,7-methano-azulene moiety. Isocedrane is a rearranged cedrane arising from the migration of methyl group moved from the 6-position to the 4-position.
