General description

γ-Terpinene, volatile essential oil derived from Melaleuca alternifolia, shows antimicrobial properties against various human pathogens. It is also extracted from Lippia multiflora. The antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative activities of γ-terpinene is studied.

Application

γ-Terpinene can be used as:
  • Hydrogen precursor in the catalytic transfer hydrogenation of silyl enol ethers.
  • A reference compound in the kinetic study of ozonolysis of (E)-β-farnesene.
  • A hydrogen atom donor in the Cr-catalyzed radical cyclization of halo acetals.
