From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

  Borneol \Bor"ne*ol\, n. [Borneo + -ol.] (Chem.)
     A rare variety of camphor, {C10H17.OH}, resembling ordinary
     camphor, from which it can be produced by reduction. It is
     said to occur in the camphor tree of Borneo and Sumatra
     ({Dryobalanops camphora}), but the natural borneol is rarely
     found in European or American commerce, being in great

     request by the Chinese. Called also {Borneo camphor}, {Malay
     camphor}, and {camphol}.
     [1913 Webster]
