The constants of sabinol from oil of savin are as follows:
B. p. 210 to 213°, 105 to 107° (20 mm.).1)
Semmler-) records d20o 0,9432; nD 1,488.
When oxidized with dilute permanganate solution, sabinol glycerol (m. p. 152 to 153°) is formed, which upon further oxidation yields a-tanacetogendicarboxylic acid (m. p. 140°). This reaction may be used for the identification of sabinol.
In general, the derivatives of this alcohol have been but little investigated.
