Turpentine Oil

Turpentine, also known as spirit of turpentine, oil of turpentine, and wood turpentine, is a liquid extracted from live trees, mainly pine, through distillation of resin. It is used as a solvent and base material in organic synthesis reactions. Turpentine is a mixture of constituents. The type and amount of specific constituents is dependent on the type of pine tree, the geographical location of the trees, and the season of tree harvest. Turpentine produced in the United States is made up primarily of α-pinene (75 to 85%) with varying amounts of β-pinene (up to 3%), camphene (4 to 15%), limonene (dipentene, 5 to 15%), 3- carene, and terpinolene. The other constituents of note are low molecular weight sulfurcontaining constituents, dimethyl sulfide, dimethyl disulfide and methyl mercaptan. Turpentine oil is used topically to treat rheumatoid and neuralgic disorders, toothaches, muscle pain, and disseminated sclerosis. Inhaling the vapors of turpentine oil can reduce thick secretions due to bronchial diseases.
