Catrinescu, C.; Fernandes, C.; Castilho, P.; Breen, C.;

In this study, we report the use of clay-based catalysts in the methoxylation of α-pinene, for the selective synthesis of α-terpinyl methyl ether, TME. The main reaction products and intermediates were identified by GC-MS. The reaction conditions (stirring rate and cata... View more
