And also formed in sulfite pulping process from the wood terpenes. It is classified as a hydrocarbon related to a monoterpene. Its structure consists of a benzene ring para-substituted with a methyl group and an isopropyl group. It is insoluble in water, but miscible with ethanol and ether.Cymene is a constituent of a number of essential oils, most commonly the oil of cumin and thyme.
