In enzymology, a (-)-borneol dehydrogenase (EC 1.1.1.227) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

(-)-borneol + NAD+ \rightleftharpoons (-)-camphor + NADH + H+

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are (-)-borneol and NAD+, whereas its 3 products are (-)-camphor, NADH, and H+.

This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is (-)-borneol:NAD+ oxidoreductase.
