Its most famous function is its powerful purification ability and research shows that it also has many benefits for health. In addition to appearing in citrus essential oils, it is also one of the ingredients of black pepper, mint, and dill, which gives us a strong orange smell. It is a common raw material for countless cleaning and beauty products, and is also widely used in food. in manufacturing.

Application of Dipentene

1. Application in food industry

Dipentene has a wide range of uses in food additives. It can not only be used in food flavors and fragrances, but it has been reported that it can be added to antioxidants such as BHA, BHT, sodium erythorbate, etc., and preservatives such as sodium benzoate. Another patent claims that adding limonene to low-fat chocolate works well.

1) Application in food flavors and fragrances: Dipentene can be used as a modifier in formulations of lemon, white lemon, orange, fruity and spicy flavors. Limonene can also be used directly in soft drinks, ice cream, candies, baked goods, jellies and puddings, chewing gum, etc.

2) Application in low-fat chocolate: The problem faced in the production of low-fat chocolate is how to reduce the fat content while maintaining the original quality and flavor of chocolate. A common way to reduce the fat content is to use fat substitutes, but this tends to give the chocolate an unpleasant taste. Through research, it has been found that adding Dipentene or limonene-rich essential oils to chocolate can make the chocolate less viscous and softer than similar low-fat chocolate products. In addition, since Dipentene itself is a natural flavor and fragrance, adding it to chocolate can impart a pleasant and refreshing lemon-like aroma, thereby improving the appearance quality of chocolate. Furthermore, limonene has good physiological activity and is a functional ingredient with great development potential.

2. Application in spice industry

Starting from Dipentene, carvone, dihydrocarvone, homolavandiol, menthol, carvaginol, β-bisabolene, acanthol, 1,8-p-mendiene- 10-alcohol and its esters (floral, mint aroma), terpineyl methyl ether (neroli aroma), 1-p-menthene-8-thiol (yuzu aroma), 2-propionyl-6-p-menteng Dozens of spices such as ene (orange leaf green fragrance), 1-hydroxy caraway menthol (tobacco flavor). d-limonene itself can be used as a raw material for preparing artificial neroli, sweet flower, lemon, and bergamot oils. It can also be used as a fresh top fragrance for cosmetics, soaps, and daily chemical essences, such as cologne, jasmine , lavender, pine, aldehyde, woody, fruity and delicate fragrances are all suitable. Racemized Dipentene is mainly contained in turpentine and its processed products, and has little value in flavoring. However, dipentene is widely used as a raw material for synthetic fragrances. For example, dipentene can be used to synthesize bergamot ester and orange Flower ketone, the p-cymene produced by disproportionation reaction, is the main raw material for the synthesis of musk and sandalwood.

3. Application in medicine

d-limonene has pharmacological activity, so it can also be used in medicine.For example, the compound limonene capsule made of d-limonene as the major component has the impacts of promoting gallbladder as well as liquifying rocks, controling qi as well as appetizing, minimizing swelling and soothing pain, and can be made use of to treat gallstones, cholecystitis and also postoperative biliary tract disorder.

4. Applications in various other areas

Dipentene can additionally be utilized as a solvent for enamel, pseudomagnetic and numerous oleoresins, resin waxes, metal drivers, or as a raw material for the manufacture of artificial resins and also synthetic rubbers. Furthermore, it can additionally be made use of as an insecticide. For example, the insect attractant 1,8-p-mendien-4-ol can be manufactured by oxidation of selenium dioxide.

Preparation of Dipentene

Expected Effect of Dipentene

Dipentene is a kind of plant refined oil, which has obvious inhibitory effect on common bacteria that cause meat rot, so it has a wide application prospect in the field of food preservation and preservation, such as inhibiting bacteria golden yellow grapes, black mold, large intestine food Corruption. After adding lemon juice to orange juice after milking, the fresh-keeping effect of lemon juice was investigated. When the amount of lemon juice added was greater than 0.50 g/L, the effect of lemon juice preservation was more obvious, and the pH value change and sensory quality were significantly better than the blank comparison. The colored jade was soaked in the lemon olein compound solution for 3 minutes. The test results showed that, compared with the blank, each treatment could significantly reduce the content of VC, kavadinic acid and soluble solids in strawberry fruit, and inhibit the water loss of strawberry. and decay, which can improve its storability.

Dipentene is a safe and non-toxic antibacterial substance. A large amount of limonene accumulates on the surface of microorganisms, resulting in a large decrease in the content of unsaturated fatty acids in the membrane, achieving antibacterial effects. Taking bacteria and molds as the research objects, the antibacterial performance of grapefruit peel pure oil was investigated. The research showed that grapefruit peel pure oil has a significant inhibitory effect on a variety of microorganisms, and with the increase of the concentration of grapefruit peel pure oil, As a result, large bacteria also gradually increased.

The oxidative damage caused by free radicals has a certain relationship with the occurrence and development of cancer, and the antioxidant capacity is more related to cancer prevention, and the extract rich in D-lemon oil has good antioxidant properties and safety. Literature research found that kumquat essential oil rich in D-kumquat essential oil has good β-carotene, antioxidant capacity, and DPPH free-range scavenging ability, which can give the human body some antioxidants and prevent the body from being oxidized and damaged.

Reactive inflammation is closely related to cancer. For example, there is a link between reactive inflammation and cancer. In cancer, there are intermediate molecules of nuclear transcription factor-κβ, promoting cell growth factors (such as tumor necrosis factor-α and IL-6) and Developmental stages play an important role, by inhibiting the activity of NF-κβ, interfering with TNF-α or IL-6 signaling, effectively inhibiting the development of cancer, and preventing inflammation and cancer through the κβ signaling pathway.

It has been reported in the literature that dipentene can act on the small molecule G protein related to cell growth, inhibit its isoprene conversion, increase the activity and production of the potential growth inhibitor TGFβ, which can be induced by chemical factors. Adenocarcinoma, skin cancer, lymphoma, etc. have obvious preventive effect. D-lemon can act on the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract, promote the secretion of the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract, reduce the spontaneous movement of smooth muscle in the respiratory tract, relieve the spasm of the sputum duct, and promote the discharge of sputum. Bladder, to relieve the generation of gallstones, can improve the physical fitness of patients, and the purpose is to prevent the recurrence of gallstones. and indigestion. Studies have found that D-limonene has the effect of dissolving residual gallstones. It’s more secure than that. Cholesterol comes from the biosynthesis of liver cells. The mixture containing 97% D-limonene is given to the bladder to pump blood through bile, so it can inhibit bile synthesis, effectively clear the gallbladder and remove stones. After long-term observation after treatment, no treatment will be given after the main symptoms.
