p-Cymene with CAS 99-87-6

what is of  p-Cymene with CAS 99-87-6?

p-Cymene is a naturally occurring compound, although it has two further geometric isomers, m-cymene (with meta-substituted alkyl groups) and o-cymene (with ortho-substituted alkyl groups) which do not occur naturally. p-Cymene is related to the monoterpenes. Monoterpenes themselves belong to the “terpenes”, a larger class of organic compounds, which are the most representative components of essential oils. chemical structure of p-cymene, indicating the benzene ring with methyl and isopropyl substitutions.
