Synthetic Camphor is prepared by using alpha-Pinene as raw material, then esterify converted camphene into L-bornyl acetate, next to saponification the L-bornyl acetate into DL-Isoborneol, and finally oxidate the DL-Isoborneol.

Synthetic Camphor is used extensively in many fields, especially in the manufacturing, medicine and cosmetics industries.
