Abstract

The essential oil of Perilla setoyensis G. Honda, a newly discovered wild perilla in Japan, was examined by GC and GUMS. The principal volatile constituent of the leaves was revealed to be a novel monoterpene, shisofuran, which was fully characterized by spectroscopic means. Nonetheless, shisofuran (18.3-19.6%) was labile and decomposed during steam distillation, leaving 1-octen-3-01 (16.2-21.8%) and P-caryophyllene (18.3-19.6%) as the major constituents of the oil.
