Terpenoids represent the most structurally and stereochemically diverse family of natural products with more than 55,000 terpenoid structures discovered to date from all life forms. Sesquiterpenes are a class of the terpenoid family, and their formation from farnesyl diphosphate is catalyzed by sesquiterpene synthases. This project focuses on trying to decipher the reaction mechanisms of two sesquiterpene synthases, 6-cadinene synthase from Gossypium arboreum and (2
