In enzymology, a R-linalool synthase (EC 4.2.3.26) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

geranyl diphosphate + H2O (3R)-linalool + diphosphate

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are geranyl diphosphate and H2O, whereas its two products are (3R)-linalool and diphosphate.

This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically those carbon-oxygen lyases acting on phosphates. The systematic name of this enzyme class is geranyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase [(3R)-linalool-forming]. Other names in common use include (3R)-linalool synthase, and (−)-3R-linalool synthase.
