Sobrerol is a mucolytic.


Sobrerol was discovered by Ascanio Sobrero as an oxidation product of terpenes. Later the oxidation and reduction reactions of chiral pinene lead also to several possible isomeres of Carvone and Sobrerol, making it possible to determin reaction mechanism and the strucural properties of pinene and of other terpenes.
