Chiral building block. Biodegradable solvent. Limonene is used as a solvent for filament-fused 3D printing, in cosmetic products, as a fragrance and as a biofuel. It is useful to promote weight loss, prevent cancer, treat cancer and treat bronchitis. It also finds use in foods, beverages, chewing gum, as a flavoring agent and a shrinking agent to dissolve polystyrene. It acts as a chiral intermediate for natural product synthesis.
