DescriptionVolatility and vapor saturation were obtained for closed-faced collected resin of 10 pine species and 4 hybrids in California. Volatility ranged from 2 to 32 percent at 25°C., and from 14 to 36 percent at 100°C. Hybrids were usually less volatile than either parent. Vapor saturation ranged widely between species, from 2 to 20 mg. per 150 cc., but only slightly within a species; hybrids were usually intermediate between the two parents.
