Chemical scientist Nuno Maulide discovered a carbon-carbon bond forming reaction that allows producing menthol from citronellal and without using metals in the reaction – in only a single step. “Now our task is to optimise the metal-free conversion of citronellal to menthol in a single step, to demonstrate the technical implementation of the reaction on a large scale, and to study its market implementation”, says Nuno Maulide about his Neutramenth Proof of Concept Grant.
