2-Ethylpentyl Salicylate Preparation

The primary step, in the methyl salicylate option that purity is 70%-99.9%, include the isooctyl alcohol remedy that pureness is 70%-99.9%, as well as methyl salicylate and isooctyl alcohol in the methyl salicylate solution The molar ratio of isooctyl alcohol in the alcohol option is 1:1 to 1:3, and also mixed for 1 to 3 hrs to create an evenly mixed raw material service.
As ideally, in the primary step, the isooctyl alcohol mol ratio in the methyl salicylate option and the isooctyl alcohol solution is 1:2.
In the second step, a strong not natural base catalyst is added to the raw product solution prepared in the first step, and the mass of the not natural base stimulant is 0.2%-1.0% of the mass of the raw product service to form a response option.
In the second action, the not natural base catalyst is sodium hydroxide (NaOH) or potassium hydroxide (KOH). Preferably, the mass of the inorganic base catalyst is 0.5% of the total mass of the raw product solution. In the 3rd action, heat the response service prepared in the second step to 100-200 ° C, as well as mix the reaction for 4-10 hours, then cool down the response remedy to 20 ° C to 80 ° C, as well as utilize hot water with a temperature of 50-100 ° C The response remedy was cleaned, and the organic stage was separated and also extracted.
In the second step, methanol is recovered after stirring the response for 4-10 hrs. Home heating the response remedy to 100-200 ° C generates methanol gas. A healing device is used to recover the methanol created during the transesterification process between the not natural alkali catalyst and the raw product option. As preferably, the response service is heated up to 150 ° C. The stirring response time was 5 hours. The number of times of cleaning the response option with warm water is 2 or 3 times.
The fourth action: initially, add anhydrous Na2SO4 to the natural phase extracted in the 3rd step, dry the natural phase with anhydrous Na2SO4, and remove the Na2SO4 in the natural phase after representing 8-12 hours; after that, get rid of the Na2SO4 organic Include the phase into the flask, carry out oil pump vacuum cleaner distillation, as well as accumulate the portion at 174– 178 ° C/1.0 kPa, which is 2-Ethylpentyl Salicylate.
In the 4th step, oil pump vacuum distillation is a previous art. 174-178 ° C/1.0 kPa indicates that the stress scale of the oil pump reveals 1.0 kPa, as well as the thermometer in the container consisting of the natural stage reveals 174-178 ° C.
