Epi-cedrol synthase (EC 4.2.3.39, 8-epicedrol synthase, epicedrol synthase) is an enzyme with systematic name (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (8-epi-cedrol-forming).[1][2] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

(2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate + H2O 8-epi-cedrol + diphosphate

This enzyme is activated by Mg2+.
