Preparation Method of Pure Menthol

Industrially, pepper mint oil and Pure Menthol are extracted from mint using steam purification and organic solvent extraction. The previous has reduced removal efficiency and the latter has the toxicity of natural solvent deposits. Menthol (menthol) removed from mint utilizing supercritical co2 can get rid of the drawbacks brought on by the above 2 approaches. Its yield has to do with 5 times more than the heavy steam distillation method and about 3 times higher than the organic solvent approach. The product maintains pure all-natural attributes, good quality, high purity, no solvent recurring poisoning, simple to fulfill export needs, and has much better competitiveness., can occupy the marketplace. Menthol can be purified from natural mint petroleum or created artificially. The important oil acquired by steam purification of the above-ground components (stems, branches, leaves and inflorescences) of the Lamiaceae plant mint is called mint crude oil, with an oil yield of 0.5-0.6. There are several ways to manufacture bohenao.

Made from citronellal
Utilizing the residential or commercial property that citronellal can quickly cyclize into isopulethol, dextrorotatory citronellal is cyclized right into levorotary isopulethol using an acid catalyst (such as silica gel), and afterwards levorotatory isopulethol is separated and hydrogenated to form levorotary mint. Its stereoisomers can be partly converted into d-citronellal via thermal fracturing and reused.

Made from pepper mint oil
After cold pepper mint oil, crystals are precipitated, and the crystals obtained by centrifugation are recrystallized with a low-boiling solvent to get pure levo-menthol. The mom liquor after eliminating the condensation still has 40% to 50% menthol, and additionally has a relatively huge amount of menthone, which is converted into a blend of L-menthol and D-menthol after hydrogenation.
