Isolated from Thymus vulgaris (thyme) [1,2], Citrus limon (lemon) , Citrus unshiu (satsuma) [4} and Origanum vulgare (oregano) . Requires Mg2+. Mn2+ less effective. The reaction involves a 1,2-hydride shift. The 5-pro-S hydrogen of geranyl diphosphate is lost. Traces of several other monoterpenoids are formed in addition to γ-terpinene.
