General description

(S)-(-)-Limonene, a monoterpenoid compound, is mostly used in perfumery and in flavoring. On irradiation, it undergoes radiolysis, which leads to a reduction in the optical purity. (S)-(-)-Limonene also shows potent antimicrobial activity.

The naturally occurring monoterpene d-limonene has chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic activity against many rodent solid tumor types. The chemopreventive activity of limonene during initiation can be attributed to the induction of phase I and phase II enzymes, with resulting carcinogen detoxification....
