286. Oil of the Leaves of Cinnamomum Camphora x C.

glanduliferum.

The botanical examination of a camphor tree growing in the Villa Flora in Cannes revealed it to be a hybrid between Cinna-momum Camphora, Nees et Eberm. and C.glanduliferum, Meissn.

At ordinary temperature the oil6) distilled from the leaves was a viscid mass permeated with camphor, from which 60 p.c. of camphor were obtained upon cooling and application of pressure. The remaining oil had the following properties: d16ol,0465; aD+34°24'; A.V.I; E.V.23,3; E.V. after acetylation 46,2; soluble in 0,8 vol. of 80 p.c. alcohol; not soluble to a clear solution with 10 vol. of 70 p.c. alcohol.

Safrol was not contained in the oil.
