General description

Geraniol undergoes oxidation with molecular oxygen in supercritical carbon dioxide catalyzed by chromium containing mesoporous molecular sieve to yield citral.

Application

Geraniol was used in field evaluation of synthetic herbivore-induced plant volatiles as attractants to beneficial insects. It was used to evaluate the tumor-suppressive potency of isoprenoids in vitro and in vivo.

The pharmacological activities of geraniol include anticancer and neuroprotective properties. However, its insolubility in water easily induces separation from aqueous formulations, causing administration difficulties. Here we propose new emulsified formulations of geraniol by using the amphiphilic polymer chitosan-oleate (CS-OA) as
