Description of (±)-Limonene
Limonene is a colorless liquid hydrocarbon classified as a cyclic terpene. The more common d-isomer possesses a strong smell of oranges. It is used in chemical synthesis as a precursor to carvone and as a renewables-based solvent in cleaning products.
Limonene takes its name from the lemon, as the rind of the lemon, like other citrus fruits, contains considerable amounts of this compound, which contributes to their odor. Limonene is a chiral molecule, and biological sources produce one enantiomer: the principal industrial source, citrus fruit, contains d-limonene ((+)-limonene), which is the (R)-enantiomer. Racemic limonene is known as dipentene. d-Limonene is obtained commercially from citrus fruits through two primary methods: centrifugal separation or steam distillation.

What is (±)-Limonene?
With the progress of science and technology and the development of society, chemical products have invariably permeated our daily lives, in medicine, food, cosmetics, electronics, industry, and other areas, becoming an essential part of our lives. One such product is Ambroxan which has developed particularly rapidly in recent years. Do you know about Ambroxan?
The official answer: Limonene alias ramene, monoterpene, chemical formula C10H16, is a natural functional monoterpene, widely used in food as a flavor and fragrance additive, colorless oily liquid, with a lemon-like aroma.
What’s the application of (±)-Limonene?
Used as a raw material for synthetic rubber, spices, also used as a solvent use often its dextrose. Can as a raw material for the preparation of artificial orange blossom, sweet flower, lemon, bergamot oil.
Can also as a fresh head fragrance for makeup, soap and daily chemical flavor, in the cologne type, floral jasmine type, lavender type and pine, aldehydes, wood, fruit or clear fragrance type are suitable. Used as a modifier in food flavors for white lemon, fruit and spice formulations.
Use as a magnetic paint, fake paint and a variety of oily resin, resin Chemicalbook wax, metal catalyst and solvent;
used in the manufacture of synthetic resin synthetic rubber; used to blend neroli flavor, citrus oil flavor, etc.; can also into a substitute for the essential oil of the lemon system.
In the presence of inorganic acid, limonene reacts with water to produce α-pinene alcohol and hydrated terpene glycol; hydrogenation under the action of platinum or color catalyst produces p-alkane, and dehydrogenation produces p-cymene.
It is also used as oil dispersant, rubber additive, wetting agent, etc. Used as solvent, also used in fragrance synthesis and pesticide production
