  1. Geraniol is a kind of monoterpenoid as well as alcohol. It is mainly existed in plant oils such as rose oil, palmarosa oil, and citronella oil. It can also be found in plants such as geraniums and lemongrass. It has a rose-like scent and is therefore used in perfumes as well as many kinds of flavors such as peach, raspberry, grapefruit, red apple, plum, lime, orange, lemon, and blueberry. Another major application of geraniol is being used as an effective plant-based insect repellent for treatment of mosquitoes, house flies, stable flies, cockroaches, fire ants, fleas and lone star ticks. On the other hand, its scent can also attract bees.
  2. Geraniol has a characteristic rose-like odor. Geraniol may be prepared by fractional distillation from those essential oils rich in geraniol, or synthetically from myrcene; commercial geraniol cannot be classified according to its alcohol content, as most of the recurring impurities are alcoholic in nature (nerol, citronellol, tetrahydrogeraniol). Gas-chromatography techniques may be usefully employed to determine the geraniol content in a product.

Chemical Properties:

  1. Geraniol has a characteristic rose-like odor The physical constants vary for the various commercial products, depending on the total geraniol content; specifc gravity and refractive index may be indicative of the purity of the product Commercial geraniol cannot be classifed according to its alcohol content, as most of the recurring impurities are alcoholic in nature (nerol, citronellol, tetrahydrogeraniol) Gas chromatography techniques may be usefully employed to determine the gera- niol content in a product.
  2. Geraniol occurs in nearly all terpene-containing essential oils, frequently as an ester. Palmarosa oil contains 70–85% geraniol; geranium oils and rose oils also contain large quantities. Geraniol is a colorless liquid, with a floral, rose-like odor.
  3. Since geraniol is an acyclic, doubly unsaturated alcohol, it can undergo a number of reactions, such as rearrangement and cyclization. Rearrangement in the presence of copper catalysts yields citronellal. In the presence of mineral acids, it cyclizes to form monocyclic terpene hydrocarbons, cyclogeraniol being obtained if the hydroxy function is protected. Partial hydrogenation leads to citronellol, and complete hydrogenation of the double bonds yields 3,7-dimethyloctan-l-ol (tetrahydrogeraniol). Citral may be obtained from geraniol by oxidation or by catalytic dehydrogenation. Geranyl esters are prepared by esterification.
  4. Geraniol is one of the most frequently used terpenoid fragrance materials. It can be used in all floral, rose-like compositions and does not discolor soaps. In flavor compositions, geraniol is used in small quantities to accentuate citrus notes. It is an important intermediate in the manufacture of geranyl esters, citronellol, and citral.
  5. Colourless to pale yellow liquid with an odour of roses


  1. Geraniol is used in the synthesis of insect repellant. It is also used in the synthesis of Angelicoin A and Herecinone J, which inhibit collagen-induced platelet aggregation.
  2. Geraniol was used in field evaluation of synthetic herbivore-induced plant volatiles as attractants to beneficial insects.It was used to evaluate the tumor-suppressive potency of isoprenoids in vitro and in vivo.
  3. Geraniol is perfuming and with tonic properties. It is a primary constituent in many essential oils, including citronella, lavender, lemongrass, orange flower, and ylang-ylang.
