Beta pinene, also known as Rosemarel, is an organic compound with the chemical formula C10H16. Monoterpene chemicals are well-known fragrances and have various aromas. Due to its high volatility and aroma produced from monoterpene, monoterpene is often used in perfumes, cosmetics, or food. Beta pinene, one of the monoterpenes, has a woody-pine like smell. The global market segment of beta-pinene is mainly dominating fragrances in perfumes and personal care products. The most common and significant industrial process of Beta Pinene is the fractional distillation of Turpentine oil. About 90% of Beta pinene produced worldwide is produced with this approach. The extraction process is refined and terpene is obtained in this process. The terpene obtained in this way is a mixture of hydrocarbon from the fractional distillation. We provide beta pinene in different grades, quantities, and packaging for your market and industry solution.
Beta pinene is obtained through the distillation of crude sulphate turpentine. In short, after the crude sulphate turpentine is extracted from wood source, the crude sulphate turpentine is further distilled and generates alpha pinene and beta pinene. The beta pinene will be separated from the alpha pinene by the determination of reflux ratio due to the difference in volatility between alpha pinene and beta pinene.
The main objective of the extraction process is to obtain crude sulphate turpentine from wood chips. Heating is conducted to the wood chips then separate the existing black liquor and fibers in the water and turpentine by a separator. Next, the black liquor is flashed to obtain water and turpentine vapor. The vapor mixture is further condensed and the aqueous and turpentine phases are separated due to density differences. The product obtained in the turpentine phase is crude sulphate turpentine which will be distilled to obtain beta-pinene.
Beta-pinene is used as a flavour excipient in medicine with limited concentration uses.
Beta pinene produces piney and woody with a hint of sweetness, thus being suitable to be added to fragrance or food flavouring. Besides flavouring and fragrance, beta pinene can be used as a raw material of pine-based resin.
Food and Beverage
Due to its woody and spicy aroma, beta-pinene can be used as a flavoring additive also as a preservative in food and beverage.
