Abstract or Summary
  • The analysis of the distribution of monoterpenes through the leaf pairs of a single shoot of Mentha piperita supports Reitsema's contention that the first terpenes formed are unsaturated ketones and that saturated terpenes are produced from these. The growth of Mentha piperita under varying conditions of temperature and the leaf-by-leaf analysis of the terpene composition of the oil demonstrate effects of environmental factors on terpene formation and interconversion. Time-course studies using C¹⁴O₂ support this portion of Reitsema's scheme: pulegone yields menthone yields menthol yields menthyl acetate. A seventy-two hour time-course with alternating periods of illumination and darkness demonstrates the interconversion of terpenes in the presence or absence of light. The conversion of pulegone to menthone; menthone to menthol and menthyl acetate; and piperitenone to pulegone, menthone and piperitone has been observed in peppermint tissue using labeled terpenes as substrates.
