TECHNOLOGICAL FORECASTING OF THE USE OF BETA-PINENE
The beta-pinene is a monoterpene present in essential oils of some medicinal plants.
Among its pharmacological effects, antibacterial, hypotensive, myorelaxing, and
anticonvulsant activities have been described in the literature. Thus, this work aimed to
perform a screening of research that were developed and patented, evaluating the
various uses described for beta-pinene. The technological forecasting was conducted in
the European Patent Office, the Bank of World Intellectual Property Organization, the
Bank of America Patent and Trademark Office Database and the National Institute of
Industrial Property of Brazil. It was concluded that the codes from international
classification most abundant in this forecasting survey were C08F and C07C. Among
the major depositors are the United States and European Patent Office. Furthermore,
there are few patents with A61K code, making the beta-pinene a promising compound
in technological preparations for health.
