Pine oil is a cyclic neutral alcohol frother. The active frothing agent in pine oil is terpineol C10H18O. 

Its usage in mineral processing stems from the fact that it is less sensitive to the presence of clay minerals than aliphatic frothers like MIBC.  It is thus normally used in mixtures with aliphatic frothers for flotation of base metals containing clays.

The main disadvantage of the use of pine oil especially from natural sources is that the composition is not consistent making resulting frothing properties variable. In fatty acid flotation, pine oil acts as a froth modifier. Mixing tall oil fatty acid with pine oil produces a froth that has improved loading properties and that collapses after discharge. Depending on the froth properties required, different percentages of oil can be used, or changes in dosage rates into the flotation cells can be made depending also on the percentage of oil available.



  1. Pine oil being an alcohol, has negligible collector properties making it an ideal frother in most mineral processing plants
  2. Unlike synthetic alcohols like MIBC, there is some degree of variability in composition of pine oil giving inconsistent outcomes even under the same reacting conditions
  3. Provides a selective, often brittle froth allowing good control and material transfer through launders and pumps
