Camphor Essential Oil White CAS 8008-51-3

White Camphor Oil is hardly used as such in perfumes, but it serves as a starting material for the isolation and production of a great number of perfumery chemicals: cineole, pinene, terpineol, para-cymene, menthol, thymol, etc. The oil itself is used as a solvent in the paint and lacquer industry, and certain synthetic perfumery chemicals are produced locally from this oil. Fractions of white camphor oil find application in the compounding of artificial essential oils (eucalyptus, thyme, rosemary, Spanish sage, lavandin, etc.) as well as for the perfuming of detergents and low-cost household products, technical odor masking, industrial products, disinfectants, insecticides, etc. A less decent application of white camphor oil is the one as an adulterant in the above mentioned essential oils.
