Abstract: The natural abundance 2H NMR characterization of raspberry ketone 1 extracted from himalayan TAXUS BACCATA and of the accompanying (R) carbinol 2 is performed and compared with that of samples of 1 obtained from 2 by oxidation with CANDIDA BOIDINII and CrO3, respectively. The determination of the delta13C and/or delta 18O values of the above extractive products and of benzoic acid (6) and 4-butylphenol (10), obtained from natural or synthetic 1, and of 4-phenylbutan-2-ol (8), prepared from extractive 2, allows a description of the labelling pattern of this set of products. A graph of (D/H)3/(D/H)2 vs (D/H)5/(D/H)4 (Figure 3) of the presently examined samples and of those previously characterized in the laboratory, including three commercial samples sold as natural, defines three areas, containing a) the material of botanic origin and that produced from extractive 2 by boooxidation, b) those produced by bioreduction of the unsaturated ketone 3 and, c) the synthetic samples.
