Description and usage notes:

Arctander says: “This isomer is the highest boiling of the Terpinenes. It has a refreshingly herbaceous-citrusy odor, not as lemony as the alpha-isomer, but somewhat warmer” and warns that “It is easily oxidized to the less desirable para-Cymene.”

Appears frequently in GC and Headspace analyses and may also be the source of the P-Cymene often observed in those results.
