The terpene hydrocarbons from the buds (squares) of Deltapine Smooihleaf cotton were obtained by steam distillation and column chromatography. Components identified and their percentages of the essential oil were: l-α-pinene (8.88), l-camphene (0.41), β-pinene (1.03), myrcene (8.16), α-phellandrene (0.07), α-terpinene (0.02), Mimonene (1.21), β-phellandrene (0.09), trans-β-ocimene (3.90), γ-terpinene (trace), and terpinolene (0.21). Various gas chromatographic techniques were utilized for preliminary identifications. Positive identifications were made by infrared, proton resonance, and ultraviolet spectroscopy.
