Commercially viable production of Delta Terpineol

Terpineol is monoterpene alcohol. There are four isomers: alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-.

Fig 1,


Delta Terpineol as a naturally occur-ring terpenoid is isolated from carrot oils, from the cinnamon tree (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) and Scotch pine (Pinus sylvestris).

Unlike Alpha Terpineol with available in quantity and purity in the market, Delta Terpineol occurs in a very low concentration in the terpineols mixture. It is the most least-known and most different to obtain of the four isomeric terpene alcohols known as terpineols because of its similar boiling point as other isomers.

Delta Terpineol is a kind of important material being used to prevent the foot-and-month disease of livestock and produce air freshening fragrance, perfume. Foreverest are committed to the exploration of deep processing products, besides Alpha Terpineol, Terpinen-4-ol, we could offer Delta Terpineol with the purity of 99%min. We believe the commercially viable production of Delta Terpineol will promote the development of the applications of Delta Terpineol in fragrances, flavors, pharmaceutical, and synthetic essential oils etc.
