Foreverest® Myrtenol is a synthetic of beta-Pinene. There are three methods to prepare Myrtenol. One is to chlorinate, esterify, and hydrolyze beta-pinene. Another is using beta-pinene as raw material, and then through the photosensitive oxidation reaction and reduction to produce myrtenol. Apart from that, the most common method is using beta-pinene as raw material and then through oxidation and isomerization to prepare myrtenol.
