The nature and inter-relationship of longifolic acids have been clarified. There are, in fact, three C15 monocarboxylic acids derived from longifolene and not two. The acid, described as longifolic acid and obtained in a state of purity for the first time by Naffa and Ourisson, has been shown as not representing the thermodynamically less stable epimer of the well-characterized isolongifolic acid but to possess a different structure, and has been termed ψ-longifolic acid. The less stable epimer, longifolic acid, has been obtained pure for the first time.
