General description

Menthone is a cyclic oxygenated terpene and its antioxidant potential has been evaluated. It is one of the key active component of Danshu capsule (DSC), a medicinal compound in traditional Chinese medicine.

Application

Menthone has been used in the following studies:
  • To prepare the model flavor mix in a study to investigate the release of various aroma compounds in xanthan-thickened food model systems having different viscosities.
  • As standard in the quantification of volatile constituents and odour-activity value (OAV) in ′Marion′ and ′Black Diamond′.
  • Modified semisolid agar antifungal susceptibility method (SAAS) to investigate the anti-fungal activities of various cyclic terpenes against Fusarium verticillioides MRC 826.
