What is Benzyl Alcohol Usp?

Benzyl Alcohol Usp, also referred to as benzyl alcohol, molecular formula C6H5CH2OH, density 1.045 g/mL at 25 ° C (lit.), is the most basic fatty alcohol containing phenyl, which can be regarded as hydroxymethyl substituted benzene, or phenyl replaced methanol. It is a colorless, transparent as well as thick liquid with a faint fragrant smell. Occasionally benzyl alcohol will have a bitter almond smell of benzaldehyde after being left for a long period of time as a result of oxidation. It has polarity, reduced toxicity and reduced vapor pressure, so it is made use of as alcohol solvent. Flammable. Slightly soluble in water (regarding 1 g of benzyl alcohol in 25 ml of water), miscible with organic solvents such as ethanol, ether, benzene, and chloroform. Benzyl Alcohol Usp is generally existing in the form of complimentary or ester in vital oils, such as jasmine oil, ylang oil, frangipani oil, hyacinth oil, moon balsam, Peru balsam and toru balsam.

Benzyl Alcohol Usp must not be saved for a very long time, it can be gradually oxidized to benzaldehyde and also anisole airborne, so the readily offered Benzyl Alcohol Usp products commonly have the characteristic almond scent of benzaldehyde. On top of that, benzyl alcohol is likewise conveniently oxidized to benzoic acid by various oxidants (such as concentrated nitric acid). Benzyl Alcohol Usp has anesthesia impact, has a strong irritating impact on eyes, skin and respiratory system, as well as is dangerous to the body if ingested, inhaled or touching skin. After ingestion, it can trigger headache, queasiness, throwing up, stomach irritation, convulsions, coma, and fatality in extreme situations. The median deadly dose in rats was 1230 mg/kg. After going into the body, benzyl alcohol is first oxidized to benzoic acid, and after that compressed with glycine in the liver and also excreted in the form of hippuric acid. Intramuscular use Benzyl Alcohol Usp as a solvent may create gluteal muscle mass contractures.

Preparation of Benzyl Alcohol And Benzoic Acid

1. Add 18 g of potassium hydroxide and 18 mL of water to a 100-mL conical beaker, and shake well to dissolve it completely [1].

2. Add 20 mL of benzaldehyde in batches and shake well to make it waxy [2].

3. After standing overnight, add 60 mL of water and shake well. If it is still not dissolved, add a small amount of water or warm to make it completely dissolved [3].

4. After cooling, the mixture was poured into a separatory funnel and extracted three times with 20 mL of ethyl acetate. The aqueous phase is ready for use. The ethyl acetate phases were combined and washed with 5 mL of saturated NaHSO3, 10 mL of 10% Na2CO3 and 10 mL of cold water, respectively. The ethyl acetate extract was dried over anhydrous magnesium sulfate.

5. Ethyl acetate was distilled off. Then the 198-204°C fraction is collected by distillation, which is Benzyl Alcohol Usp. Pure benzyl alcohol is a colorless liquid, b.p. 205.3°C, d2 241.0419, nD 201.5396.

6. Weigh and calculate yield.

7. Under stirring, the remaining aqueous layer was acidified with concentrated hydrochloric acid until the Congo red test paper turned blue, and the benzoic acid was precipitated by cooling sufficiently.

8. Suction filtration, washing, drying, weighing, and calculating the yield. Pure benzoic acid is colorless needle-like crystals, m.p.122.13℃.

[1] This is concentrated alkali, so be careful not to get it on your skin. If it does, rinse it off in time.

[2] Benzaldehyde must be freshly distilled and added in batches. Every time you add a cork, use a cork to tighten the stopper and shake vigorously. If the temperature is too high, you can put the reaction bottle in a cold water bath to cool down, and repeat this process. Until the reaction becomes white waxy, it can be left overnight.

[3] Place the flask on the iron stand, add water under slightly hot conditions to dissolve the wax in the flask, if insoluble, continue to add water while stirring until all the solids are dissolved.

[4] The remaining solution after the ethyl acetate recovery is replaced by an air condenser, and the 198-204°C fraction is collected by distillation (Benzyl Alcohol Uspb.p.205.4°C).
