Abstract

Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) and olibanum (B. serrata) were chemically analyzed to determine compounds that would enable the differentiation of the two products. Typical compounds for both species were identified. Three new compounds, 24-noroleana-3,9(11),12-triene, 24-norursa-3,9(11),12-triene, and 24-norursa-3,12-diene-11-one, were identified in olibanum; these may be either naturally occuring or pyrolytic products.
