Limonene is a clear, colorless liquid hydrocarbon classified as a cyclic monoterpene, and is the major component in oil of citrus fruit peels.[1] The D-isomer occurring more commonly in nature as the fragrance of oranges is a flavoring agent in food manufacturing.[1][2] It is also used in chemical synthesis as a precursor to carvone and as a renewables-based solvent in cleaning products.[1] The less common Lisomer is found in mint oils and has a pineyturpentine-like odor.[1]

Limonene takes its name from the peel of the lemon. Limonene is a chiral molecule, and biological sources produce one enantiomer: the principal industrial source, citrus fruit, contains D-limonene ((+)-limonene), which is the (R)-enantiomer.[1] Racemic limonene is known as dipentene.[3] D-Limonene is obtained commercially from citrus fruits through two primary methods: centrifugal separation or steam distillation.
