Sesquiterpene hydrocarbons obtained from the buds (squares) of Deltapine Smooth-leaf cotton by steam distillation and column chromatography were identified by gas chromatographic techniques, infrared, proton resonance, and mass spectroscopy. Components identified and their percentages of the essential oil were: copaene (0.24), I-trans-α-bergamotene (0.33), I-caryophyllene (7.51), farnesene (0.03), α-humulene (2.54),cis γ-bisabolene (2.90), δ-5-guaiene (1.02), and I-δ-cadinene (0.24).
