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%.
