Abstract

BAPTISTELLA, Lúcia Helena Brito; IMAMURA, Paulo Mitsuo; MELO, Leandro Vilela de  and  CASTELLO, Cláudio. Preparation of (+)-±-Terpineol from (+)-limonene: monoterpenes with pleasant odor in a project for undergraduate organic chemistry laboratory. Quím. Nova [online]. 2009, vol.32, n.4, pp. 1069-1071. ISSN 0100-4042.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-40422009000400042.

A synthesis of (+)-±-terpineol from (+)-limonene was proposed as a project for undergraduate organic laboratory course. Terpineol is a useful flavor and fragrance compound, and several aspects of this preparation are suited for experimental organic classes, including basic techniques for extraction and analyses of essential oils, different reaction types and the possibility of a high degree of student interest.

Keywords : terpineol; limonene; project for undergraduate organic laboratory.
