Menthol crystals are natural products, and the main challenge is obtaining a sufficient yield from their sources. Continuous research is being conducted to improve menthol oil extraction technologies from various mint plants. Large market players are also investing in the development of new menthol crystal applications in the personal care and pharmaceutical industries. The price of natural menthol crystals is rising due to increased demand and limited supply. However, the market penetration of synthetic menthol crystals is balancing the price growth to some extent.

Production Processes:

  • Production of Synthetic Menthol via Hydrogenation Process; from Pulegone via Hydrogenation; and from Myrcene via Asymmetric Synthesis

The production of Synthetic Menthol via hydrogenation involves alkylation of m-cresol using propene to produce thymol, which undergoes hydrogenation to form a reaction mixture. Fractional distillation of the obtained mixture takes place to finally produce Synthetic Menthol.
