Steam distillation of chamazulene from chamomile.

Chamazulene is a blue oil, what is found in chamomile flowers, even when they are dried. It is a really interesting compound, since it has an azulene skeleton what is an isomer of the naphthalene, the only difference, that it does not contain two 6 carbon aromatic rings, it has a 5 and a 7 carbon ring in it.

Interesting fact: if you heat or expose pure azulene to strong light it will isomerize to form naphthalene.
