Chemical Composition of Turpentine from Pinus khasya
Abstract:Chemical composition of Pinus khasya turpentine from different provenances (Assam, Burma, Viet Nam and P. insularis from the Philippines, marked as P. khasya) was studied. The samples were obtained from 44 individual trees growing in plantations in Zambia and analyzed by gas liquid chromatography. The Assam (northern) provenance yielded turpentine of high -pinene, high longifolene, and low -phellandrene content. The Viet Nam and Philippine provenances both may be characterized by low -pinene, low longifolene, and relatively high -phellandrene content, the Philippine being the higher of the two. Analyses of the Burmese provenance samples suggest that the northern (Assam) race of P. khasya intermingles in the southern Shah states of Burma with a Burmese race, characterized by high longifolene, low -phellandrene, and low -pinene content.
