Abstract

(+)-Limonene was administered intragastrically to rats and ten terpenoid metabolites were isolated from the urines. Of these metabolites, seven were identified by chromatographic and spectral analysis as p-mentha-2,8-dien-1-α-ol, p-mentha-2,8-dien-1-β-ol, p-mentha-1,8-dien-6-α-ol, p-mentha-1,8-dien-6-β-ol, p-mentha-2-ene-8,9-diol, p-mentha-1,8-dien-7-ol, and 4-isopropenyl-1-cyclohexene-1-carboxylic acid.
