What is Camphor?

Camphor is a common terpenoid that many are familiar with. In-fact, it is likely you have this terpenoid in many products you have at home currently. The primary source of camphor is the camphor tree (from which the terpenoid gets its name); camphor is not limited to the camphor tree though, it is also abundant in kapur trees, rosemary, and camphor basil. When isolated, the terpenoid looks like a colorless or white liquid.
