Detoxification of an antifungal monoterpene terpinolene (1) by the plant pathogenic fungus Botrytis cinerea afforded hydroxlyated metabolites 2,3-dihydro-3beta,6beta-dihydroxy-terpinolene (2) (39%) and 2,3-dihydro-1alpha,3alpha-dihydroxy-terpinolene (3) (20%), respectively. Terpinolene showed good levels of antifungal activity while both the metabolites were inactive against another plant pathogenic fungus Cladosporium herbarum.
