Abstract

Abstract Citrus fruit and leaf explants were fed linalool-3- 14C. Volatile oils were recovered by steam distillation and fractionated by gas—liquid and thin-layer chromatography. α-Terpineol and other terpenoid alcohols were the predominant metabolites in leaves. Fruit also produced α-terpineol, but significant label could also be found in (+)-limonene and other hydrocarbons.
