Terpineol is naturally found in pine oil, lavender oil, orange leaf oil, neroli oil and other plant oils.
α-Terpineol, β-Terpineol, γ-Terpineol, and terpinen-4-ol are four isomers of terpineol. α-terpineol is the major component.
Terpineol is a viscous liquid with pine-like and clove-like odor.
Terpineol is widely used in the fragrance formulation, especially in soaps and synthetic detergent.
Terpineol MU is a monoterpene alcohol compound, which is derived from the hydration of alpha-Pinene or Gum Turpentine. There are three isomers, alpha-, beta-, and gamma-terpineol, Terpineol is usually a mixture of these isomers with alpha-terpineol as the major constituent.
The MU grade is mainly used in medical disinfectants.
In the field of medical disinfection, α -Terpineol is used for sterilization in medical formulations such as disinfectant and sterilization products. It has significant effect against Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli and Candida albicans. According to the research1, Terpineol MU has been on human skin for 2 minutes, the average killing rate of natural bacteria on the skin surface can reach 98.46%.

Terpineol Electric Grade is specially designed as a cleaning agent. It has ultra-low moisture content and special removing flux solder from the printed circuit board surface.
Perfumery Grade Terpineol is colorless liquid with natural lilac odor. It is specially used in fragrance of daily chemical products. It is suitable for floral aromatherapy formulas such as acacia, lily of the valley, lily, orange blossom and lilac.
Terpineol MU Grade, a synthetic compound of monoterpene alcohol, which is derived from the hydration of alpha-Pinene or Gum Turpentine. There are three isomers, alpha-Terpineol, beta-,Terpineol and gamma-Terpineol, the last two differing only by the location of the double bond. Terpineol is usually a mixture of these isomers with alpha-Terpineol as the major constituent.
MU Grade is specialty used for industrial application and medical formulation. It is widely used for solvent for ethylcellulose, plasticizer for epoxy resin and fragrance synthetics.
The α-Terpineol is mainly effected as medical uses on S. aureus, P. aeruginosa, E. coli and C. albicans. According as the research report that when MU Grade is sprayed on human skin for 2 min, can kill 98.46% of germs. 1

Terpineol is naturally found in pine oil, lavender oil, orange leaf oil, neroli oil and other plant oils. α-terpineol, β-terpineol, γ-terpineol, and terpinen-4-ol are four isomers of terpineol. α-terpineol is the major component.
Terpineol is a viscous liquid with pine like and clove like odor, but is easy to crystallize.
There are two methods for preparing terpineol. The two-step preparation process is to use α-pinene as raw material to produce terpineol through hydration under acidic conditions. The one-step method is to directly prepare terpineol by hydration reaction.
Terpineol is widely used in fragrance formulation, especially in soaps and synthetic detergents.
85% Terpineol has high purity can kill germs and is used as a disinfectant in cleaning formulas. Click to learn about cleaning solution.
Pine Oil is a derivative of turpentine obtained by steam distillation of the species Pinus. Pine Oil has a strong piny odor and is miscible with alcohol. Pine Oil contains alpha-terpineol plus other cyclic terpene alcohols and terpene hydrocarbons.
