Mass spectral data of the products identified from the gas-phase ozonolysis of terpinolene The identification of the reported terpinolene ozonolysis products was made using a ThermoFinnigan gas chromatograph with mass spectrometric detection (GC-MS) in electron impact (EI, 70eV) and negative chemical ionisation (CI(-), methane) modes following derivatisation using 14% BF 3 /MeOH. Five organic acids were identified as their corresponding methyl ester derivatives, as represented by

Descriptions of the structure elucidation of these compounds are given in the main paper. Fig. SP1 GC/EI and CI(-)-MS spectra for P1, tentatively identified as methylated terpinolic acid (a).
