SYNTHETIC PIPERONAL

The Anthea Group has always been focused on conserving and protecting the environment. After years of in-house research, we have developed and commercialized a novel process to manufacture Piperonal (Heliotropin) from phenol. The product is manufactured in our group company Crown Chemicals.

We are hopeful that the increasing use of our synthetic product will put an end to the widespread destruction of Sassafras forests around the world.
