Where Are Terpenes Found?
Terpenes Found Terpenes are compounds derived from the chemical formula C30H48. The linear triterpene squalene was synthesized biosynthetically by reductive coupling of two molecules of farnesyl pyrophosphate. It is biosynthetically processed to produce lanosterol and cycloartenol. Sesquatrate pentenes contain seven isoprene units. Typically, sesquatrate terpenes contain tetraprenyl curcumene. Terpenes are produced by glands in plants, but some parts secrete more […]
