Dihydromyrcene is a colorless, transparent liquid with a jasmine odor.

Dihydromyrcene is prepared by the pyrolysis of pinane after the hydrotreating of alpha-Pinene and beta-Pinene. In addition, another preparation method is using beta-Pinene as raw material to pyrolyze into Myrcene, and then produce dihydromyrcene through the Selective Hydrogenation Process.

Dihydromyrcene is the intermediate material of Dihydromyrcenol. It can be further prepared as dihydromyrcenol by hydration reaction.
