d-Limonene is an unsaturated optically-active cyclic aliphatic hydrocarbon, It is extracted from citrus peel oils by distillation or from the waste peel by a second pressing and/or steam distillation, and contains a minimum of 94% d-limonene, with the remainder being a mixture of related hydrocarbon terpenes and oxygenated alcohol and aldehyde terpenes with a maximum of 2% oxygenated hydrocarbons. d-Limonene can be extracted from the fruit of the common sweet orange tree (Citrus sinensis, Rutaceae), grapefruit tree (Citrus paradisi, Macfadyen), lemon tree (Citrus limonium, Rutaceae), lime tree (Citrus aurantifolia, Rutaceae), and/or tangerine tree (Citrus reticulate [mandarin]). d-Limonene is derived solely from renewable biomass sources.
