What is Gamma-Terpinene?

A Guide to γ-Terpinene

Gamma-Terpinene is a monoterpene that falls into the category of terpinene, a group of isomeric hydrocarbons. While terpinenes have the same carbon framework and molecular formula, their carbon-carbon double bonds will vary which distinguishes them from one another. Gamma-Terpinene is abundant in many fruits (especially citrus), making up their distinct, sweet scents. When isolated, gamma-terpinene has a colorless, oil consistency with a woody, lemon-lime scent.
