General description

Linalool is a monoterepene compound. It is the major component of many essential oils. Anti-inflammatory properties of (−) linalool, a naturally occurring enantiomer, has been studied. It is also the major constituent of the basil and thyme essential oil and its anti-microbial effect was determined using the agar well diffusion assay. Linalool is reported to have dose-dependent marked sedative effects at the central nervous system (CNS), including hypnotic, anticonvulsant and hypothermic properties. Linalool is reported to have a lemon like odor.
Linalool ((±)-3,7-Dimethyl-1,6-octadien-3-ol, (±)-3,7-Dimethyl-3-hydroxy-1,6-octadiene) affords α-terpineol and 3,7-dimethyloct-1-en-3,7-diol on dissolution in aqueous citric and hydrochloric acids. It has been reported as a fragrance ingredient.

Application

Linalool has been used to study the blends of various flower aroma compounds as a floral attractant for the migratory moth velvetbean caterpillar (Anticarsia gemmatalis Hübner).
