Terpinen-4-ol is an isomer of terpineol with a molecular weight of 154.249. It has an antibacterial and antifungal effect.
Terpinen-4-ol occurs in Juniperus communis and is thought to be the reason this wood is highly resistant to rot. Norwegian farmers used to exploit this by making fence poles out of juniper. The concentration is higher in the alpine subspecies of juniper, but occurs in both subspecies.
