Anaerobic degradation of natural monoterpenes by microorganisms was evaluated by using Pseudomonas citronellolis DSM 50332 and enrichment cultures containing nitrate as an electron acceptor. P. citronellolis grew anaerobically on 3,7-dimethyl-1-octanol and citronellol but not on geraniol, nerol, and alicyclic monoterpenes....

The tetrahydrogeraniol (THG) derivative, ethyl-(3,7-dimethyl octyl thio) acetate (EDOTA) was prepared by reacting tetrahydrogeranyl bromide (obtained by reaction of 40% hydrobromic acid and concentrated sulfuric acid) with ethyl 2-mercaptoacetate, while 3,7-dimethyl octyl propionate (DOP) was synthesized by a common esterification...

We have characterized the odorant binding properties of purified bovine odorant-binding protein (OBP) using as a ligand [3H]3,7-dimethyloctan-1-ol ([3H]DMO). A broad variety of odorants, including terpenes, aldehydes, esters, and musks, bind to OBP with affinities of 0.2 to 100 microM....

In the present study a new alcohol derivative of tetrahydrogeraniol (THG), an acyclic monoterpene, has been prepared by using Grignard reagent and methyl cyclopropyl ketone. Penetration enhancing effects of THG and the synthesized derivative 5,9-dimethyl-2-cyclopropyl-2-decanol (DICNOL) on the transdermal penetration...
