    Drimenol is a sesquiterpene drimane first isolated from members of the Canellaceae family. More recently, Drimenol was
    prepared semi-synthetically from polygodial isolated from the Australian tree, Tasmannia lanceolata, by Smith and colleagues at the University of Tasmania, Australia. Drimenol possesses antifungal, insect anti-feedant and larval growth regulatory activity.
