(-)-Menthol (137b) was glycosylated by Eucalyptus perriniana suspension cells to (-)-menthol diglucoside (364, 26.6%) and another menthol glycoside. On the other hand, (+)-menthol (137b') was glycosylated by Eucalyptus perriniana suspension cells to (+)-menthol di- (364', 44.0%) and triglucosides (365, 6.8%) (Hamada et al., 2002) (Figure 14.67).
