Terpineol

Products & Informations

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
