GENERAL DESCRIPTION & APPLICATIONS
Dipentene is a terpene liquid found in various volatile oils such as cardamon, mace, nutmeg , turpentine oil. Dipentene is mainly composed of limonene, beta phellandrene, myrcene and other terpenes. Dipentene is used as a solvent for resins, alkyds and waxes and to make paints, enamels, lacquers and polishes. Dipentine is used as a perfumery composition for soaps, personal care products and cosmetics. It is used as an intermediate for terpene resins, carvone, terylene, and rubber chemicals. It is used as an oils dispersant, metal dryer. It is used as a substitute for chlorinated solvents in degreasing metals for cleaning in the electronic industry and the printing industry while it can also be used as starting material for the synthesis of terpene resin. alpha-Limonene has been used as a gallstone solubilizer in pharmaceutical industry.
