From leaves of Holcus mollis L. the structure of the cyanogenic glycoside could be elucidated as 2-β-ᴅ-glucopyranosyloxy- 2S-butyronitrile (Heterodendrin) by means of chromatography, hydrolysis and 1H-NMR-spectroscopy. By that another example for grasses is given where obviously the general assumed biogenetic pathway starting with tyrosine is not used
