General description

β-pinene is a volatile monoterepenoid and is the key ingredient of the essential oil isolated from Cedronella canariensis. It is also the main component of the essential oils of resins of Pinus brutia and Pinus pinea.

Application


  • Potential use of pinenes to improve localized insecticide injections targeting the western drywood termite (Blattodea: Kalotermitidae).: This research investigates the use of (−)-β-Pinene as a potential enhancer for insecticide treatments against termites, suggesting improvements in pest control strategies (Poulos et al., 2024).
