NATURAL TERPENE INGREDIENTS
Semi-synthetic ingredients are one of important raw materials on flavor & fragrance industry. The terpenes based is a huge secondary metabolites family in plants, mainly includes Monoterpenes, Sesquiterpenes and Diterpenes.Foreverest™ Terpenes Based Ingredients resource from pine trees, camphor trees and eucalyptus trees. Such like α-Pinene and β-Pinene are the main ingredients of Gum Turpentine from pines. China has rich species resource and mature process, which is the material export county in the world.
For the flavor & fragrance manufacturing, the common synthetic routes were identified as ring-opening of cyclic monomers, such like Linalool, Geraniol, Dihydromyrcenol, Lauryl alcohol or Neroli. Monoterpene alcohols, such like Terpineol. Or other cyclic compounds, such like Camphor and Isobornyl. The products can synthetic as materials and intermediates for downsteam routes, such like Bornyl Acetate, Isobutyl Acetate, Allocimene, Ambergris Ketones, etc.
Preparation of fractionate and extracted from Pinus, Eucalyptus and Cinnamomum.
Bio renewable and sustainable. Terpene compounds have flora and woody odor characters.
Original supply chain on China, rich ranges of purity and optical rotation as manufacturing demand.
TDS, SDS, trade documents and certificated by the Embassy offer available.
Terpenes are a large family organic compound in plants, which are derived from units of isoprene. The basic molecular formuae are multiples of (C5H8)n. They often have strong and fresh smelling, the derivatives and downsteam products can used in perfumery and flavors.
Terpenes can be classified as Hemiterpenes (C5H8), Monoterpenes (C10H16), Sesquiterpenes (C15H24), Diterpenes (C20H32), Sesterterpenes, Triterpenes (C30H48), Sesquarterpenes (C35H56), Tetraterpenes (C40H64), Polyterpenes and Norisoprenoids. They are a huge organic group come from natural resources. Renewable and sustainable. In addition the application of flavors and fragrances, terpenes also can used in many industries.
Some terpene chemicals are commodity materials, such like Dipentene (Limonene) can used in dispersants and solvents. Terpinolene can used as surface preservatives. α-Terpineol can applied for inks and electronic industries.
Some terpenes have low specific rotation, high purity, appeared light colour and smelling strong. Which are supplied as synthetic materials or intermediates on flavor and fragrance industry. Such like β-Phellandrene, Isolongifolens or Isocitronellene.
Due to the low toxicity for human and animal health and the natural toxicity to pests, terpenes also are the main organic ingredients of biopesticides.
