Natural Hinokitiol is presently stepping into the limelight thanks to strong antibacterial activity and antibacterial spectrum.
Hinokitiol is crystalline acidic compounds relatively much contained in Aomori Hiba. As other trees containing Hinokitiol, Taiwan Hinoki (Taiwan), Western red cedar (North America) are named, but Hinokitiol is not almost contained in Japanese Hinoki.
In 1936. Taiwan hinoki oil was isolated for the first time, and almost same period, a scholar of Sweden succeeded isolation of the same compound separately. In those days, it became a focus of attention due to having tropolone skeleton. Recently, the strong antibacterial activity and wide antibacterial spectrum of Hinokitiol have been revealed by Doctor Toshihiro Okabe at Aomori prefecture industrial test station, and a new attention has been focused.
Our company group has established the total manufacturing business of Natural Hinokitiol as achievements of "Tree extraction ingredient utilization business" sponsored by the auxiliary business at Forestry Agency starting with the year 1989, and we now freshly have started stable supply by a newly built plant keeping pace with widened demands inland and overseas and progress of newly application study development.
