Abstract The constituents of essential oils obtained from the root, mesocarp, seed and leaf of L. glauca (Sieb. et Zucc.) Blume grown in Toyono-cho (Osaka prefecture) were investigated by chromato-graphical and spectral methods. From the neutral fraction of the root oil, three compounds isolated: a new sesquiterpene hydrocarbon “aciphyllene” [5 S-(5 α, 8 β, 8 aα)]-l, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 8 a-octahydro-3, 8-dimethyl-5-(1-methyl ethenyl)-azulene (V) and two new sesquiterpene alcohols “aci-phyllyl alcohol” [5 S-(5 α, 8 β, 8 a)]-1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 8 a-octahydro-3, 8-dimethyl-α-methylene-5-azulene-methanol (III) and “glaucyl alcohol” [3 S-(3 α, 5 α, 8 α)]-1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8-octahydro-3, 8-dimethyl-α-methylene-5-azulenemethanol (VIII). The major components of the neutral fraction of root oil were α-guaiene, aciphyllene and δ-guaiene. Those of mesocarp oil were trans-β-ocimene and glaucic acid, and those of the seed oil were decanoic and lauric acid, while the characteristic components of leaf oil were trans-2-hexenoic acid, cis-3-hexenol and trans-2-hexenal.
