What is Cinene?
Cinene is a monoterpene hydrocarbon with the chemical formula C10H16. It is a major component of the essential oils of many coniferous trees, such as pines, spruces, and firs, and is responsible for their distinctive aroma. Cinene is a colorless liquid with a low boiling point, making it easy to extract and purify from plant materials. In addition to its aromatic properties, cinene has demonstrated antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory effects, making it an attractive target for drug discovery and development.

How Creative Proteomics Support Cinene Analysis
Creative Proteomics is a leading provider of metabolomics services. We offer a range of services for the detection, quantification and characterization of cinene in different types of samples. Our team of experienced scientists utilize state-of-the-art analytical instruments and methods to provide accurate and reliable results.
We offer both standard and custom solutions for the analysis of cinene, including GC-MS and LC-MS. through method optimization to suit specific sample types and matrices, we ensure the most accurate and precise results are obtained. We can also provide support for the analysis of cinnamene enantiomers, which is useful for determining the stereochemistry of cinnamene and related compounds.
Applications of Cinene Analysis
Study of natural products: especially essential oils, which are complex mixtures of volatile compounds, and cinene is often the main component in these oils. Cinene analysis by LC-MS can help identify and quantify the different isomers of cinene in essential oils, as well as other compounds that may be present. It can be used to assess the quality and purity of essential oils and to identify potential sources of adulteration or contamination.
In food and flavor chemistry: quantifying cinene in different food matrices, such as fruits, vegetables and spices, can also be used to identify other compounds that contribute to the overall flavor and aroma of these products.
In the pharmaceutical industry: to study the pharmacological properties of cinene and its derivatives. Cinnamene has been shown to have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. By analyzing the different isomers of cinene and their effects on various biological systems, insight is gained into the potential applications of this compound in drug discovery and development.
