Secondary 22 M. Zuzarte and L. Salgueiro metabolites are found only in some species and are classified as terpenoids, shikimates, polyketides, and alkaloids, the first two being the most relevant in essential oils (Sell 2010). Although terpenoids are more frequent and abundant in essential oils, certain species contain high quantities of shikimates, namely phenylpropanoids and when these compounds are present, they provide specific odor and flavor to the plants (Sangwan et al. 2001). Terpenes Terpenes result from the condensation of a pentacarbonate unit with two unsaturated bonds, isoprene (2-methyl-1,3-butadiene), and therefore are many times called isoprenoides.

Hydrocarbons Cadinene Name derived from Cade juniper – Juniperus oxycedrus since the wood of this species yields an oil from which cadinene isomers (α, γ, and δ) were first isolated. A mixtute of cadinene isomers is used as a flavoring agent/flavor modifier (Yannai 2004). α γ δ Caryophyllene β-Caryophyllene is the most widely distributed isomer, usually together with isocaryophyllene (Hunter 2009). It has a clove-type turpentine odor and occurs as an important compound in the essential oils of different spice and food plants, such as oregano – Origanum vulgare (Mockute et al.

Heavier terpenes, such as diterpenes, may also be present but usually do not contribute to the odor of essential oils (Hunter 2009). Phenylpropanoids Phenylpropanoids contain one or more C6–C3 units, the C6 being a benzene ring. Many of the phenylpropanoids found in essential oils are phenols or phenol ethers and in some cases, the side chain is shortened (C1) as, for example, in methyl salicylate and vanillin (Tyler et al. 1988). 2), their main precursors being cinnamic acid and p-hydroxycinnamic acid, originated from the aromatic amino acids phenylalanine and tyrosine, respectively (Dewick 2002a; Sangwan et al.
