CAS 21368-68-3 DL Camphor
Camphor CAS 21368-68-3 , also known as 2-camphenone, is a bicyclic terpene ketone compound with two asymmetric carbon atoms (1-4 positions) in its molecular structure. Theoretically, there should be four optical isomers, but only three known ones are d -, l -, and dl -. Camphor is naturally present in many essential oils, mainly in camphor tree oil, turpentine oil, basil oil, and Artemisia annua. Most of them are d-form, while l-form is found in silver gum chrysanthemum and Artemisia annua essential oils. D-form is relatively rare in nature and is mostly a synthetic product, only present in Japanese original chrysanthemum essential oils. Has a strong clear aroma. The taste is slightly bitter and cool. Colorless or white cubic crystalline flake crystals, or crystalline powders.
