Error p25: Under aldehydes: "..alpha-santalene of Sandalwood..." (alpha-santalene is a hydrocarbon, not an aldehyde)

Error p44: Under main components (of clove oils): a table is given listing, among other things, differing percentages of acetoeugenol and eugenyl acetate contents for clove bud, leaf and stem oils. Acetoeugenol and eugenyl acetate are, in fact, the same substance, there is therefore a double entry for this substance with inconsistent (differing) data.
