Bisabolenes are a group of closely related natural chemical compounds which are classified as sesquiterpenes. Bisabolenes are present in the essential oils of a wide variety of plants including cubeb, lemon and oregano. Various derivates also function as pheromones in different insects, such as stink bugs[1] and fruit flies.[2]


Bisabolenes are intermediates in the biosynthesis of many other natural chemical compounds,[3] including hernandulcin, a natural sweetener. β-Bisabolene has a balsamic odor[4] and is approved in Europe as a food additive.
