α-Pinene is the main component of most turpentine oils. In order to obtain more valuable products, α-pinene in the turpentine can be hydrated in dilute mineral acid solutions to produce α- terpineol, which can be used as perfume, repellent of insect, antifungal and disinfectant. This paper presents a study on heterogeneous kinetics model for synthesis of α-terpineol from α-pinene. In this work, the two kinetics models both the ideal and the non ideal solution assumption have been developed to quantitatively describe effects of hydration process of α-pinene in aqueous acid solution. The results of this study show that the kinetics model of the hydration of α-pinene can be approached by the heterogeneous model. A good agreement between the experimental data and the model has been observed. Keywords— α-pinene, α-terpineol, hydration, kinetics
