terpene

 [ter´pēn]
any hydrocarbon of the formula C10H16.

ter·pene

(ter'pēn),
One of a class of hydrocarbons with an empiric formula of C10H16, occurring in essential oils and resins. Acyclic terpenes may be regarded as isomers and polymers of isoprene units; cyclic forms include menthane, bornane, and camphene. Terpenes containing 15, 20, 30, 40, etc., carbon atoms are called sesquiterpenes, diterpenes, triterpenes, tetraterpenes, etc.

terpene

an unsaturated hydrocarbon of plant resins and oils.
