CONTEXT Biotransformation systems are profitable tools for structural modification of bioactive natural compounds into valuable biologically active terpenoids. OBJECTIVE This study determines the biological effect of (R)-(+)-limonene and (-)-α-pinene, and their oxygenated derivatives, (a) perillyl alcohol and (S)-(+)- and (R)-(-)-carvone enantiomers and (b) linalool, trans-verbenol and verbenone, respectively, on human colon tumour cells and normal colonic epithelium.
