Steam distilled carrot seed oil typically contains significant amounts of the sesquiterpene alcohol carotol (<67%) and the monoterpenoid ester geranyl acetate (<25%) (Figure 3), with highly variable amounts of the monoterpenoids alpha-pinene (2-25%), sabinene (<32%) and linalool (<6%), and of the sesquiterpenoids P-bisabolene (<16%) and daucol (<10%) (13,14,15,16) Three flavones, luteolin, luteolin 3'-O-P-D-glucopyranoside and luteolin 4'-O-P-D-glucopyranoside have been isolated from a methanol extract of carrot seed.

Nine monoterpenoid indole alkaloids; naucletine (1), angustidine (2), nauclefine (3), angustine (4), naucline (5), angustoline (6), harmane (7), 3,14-dihydroangustoline (8), strictosamide (9) and one quinoline alkaloid glycoside; pumiloside (10) from Nauclea officinalis were tested for cholinesterase inhibitory activity.
10 Monoterpenoid Indole Alkaloid Biosynthesis Vincenzo De Luca
One of the products that was studied was [alpha]-terpineol, which is a monoterpenoid that has a significantly higher added value than limonene (about 60 to 100 times more), and a market value of 13,000 tons commercialized per year.
The results obtained show that monoterpenes and oxygenated monoterpenoid compounds contribute very little (< 1%) to the chamomile oil composition.
