Alpha-Terpineol (I), a monocyclic monoterpene tertiary alcohol, is widely used in the manufacture of perfumes, cosmetics, soaps and antiseptic agents. It was reported earlier (Horning et al. 1976) that this monoterpene alcohol when administered to humans is hydroxylated to p-menth-l,2,8-triol (II). It is not known whether c~-terpineol also produces other metabolites during its metabolism in the mammalian system and if so, the nature of these metabolites.
