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.
