The aldehyde form of beta-asarone is Cis-2,4,5-Trimethoxycinnamaldehyde.
Melting Point: 57-61 ° C; 62-63 ° C @ 760 mmHg. This information needs further verification. This information is suspected of being incorrect because calamus oil high in beta-asarone does not crystallize on standing at room temperature. Many sources confuse alpha-asarone for beta-asarone. Alpha-asarone is a solid at room temperature. One source states that beta-asrone is a colorless to pale yellow clear liquid, indicating that the melting point is far below room temperature (21 C).
Boiling Point: 296 °C at 760 mmHg. A few sources state 264-267 ° C @ 760 mmHg; This information needs further verification.
