What is Benzyl Cinnamate?

Benzyl cinnamate is insoluble in water, ethylene glycol, soluble in ethanol and other organic solvents. . Relative density (25 ℃): 1.109-1.112; melting point 34.7 ℃. Soluble in ethanol. Aroma: Spicy, floral, powdery, balsamic and sweet balsamic aroma. Light sweet ointment, like styrax, warm and floral. Taste: spicy, floral, fruity, balsamic, honey-like taste. An aromatic chemical, usually in the form of a white powder, kept in a ventilated, low-temperature, dry place with a sweet floral aroma. This substance appears in several of our scent blends.

Benzyl cinnamate is an industrial synthetic chemical made from benzyl alcohol and cinnamic acid, but it can occur naturally in certain plants and plant extracts, including Peruvian balsam and toru balsam.

Benzyl cinnamate is commonly found in fragrances, as a synthetic additive used as a fixative to help preserve the longevity of fragrances, or as a natural component of key oils used in fragrances.

Research has shown that a small percentage of people may be sensitive to this ingredient, which is why we list it when we detect it in fragrances, even if it only occurs in very low concentrations, like the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) within the scope of safe use. IFRA is the fragrance industry’s self-regulatory representative body dedicated to promoting the safe use of fragrances.

Benzyl Cinnamate Uses

  1. Benzyl cinnamate is a UV absorber. Mainly used for sunscreen and tanning cosmetics. The maximum absorption wavelength of ultraviolet rays is 3l0μm. The addition amount is usually less than 5%. In addition, it is also used to formulate artificial ambergris and oriental flavors as fixatives. And are used for the deployment of floral flavors, oriental or fantasy flavors and edible flavors (cherry, strawberry, raspberry, balm).
  2. Benzyl cinnamate is a permitted food spice specified in GB 2760–1996. Mainly used for the preparation of honey, pear, apricot and other flavors.
  3. Benzyl cinnamate is used in the preparation of artificial dragonfly incense, as a fixative in oriental flavors, and as a flavoring raw material for soaps, cosmetics and food fruit flavors.
  4. Benzyl cinnamate has the unique aroma of balsam. It is mainly used in the preparation of artificial dragonfly incense, as a fixative in oriental flavors, and as a flavoring raw material for soaps, cosmetics and edible fruit flavors.

Synthesis of Benzyl Cinnamate by Esterification of Cinnamate

In this research, lipase catalysis was effectively put on the esterification of cinnamic acid and benzyl alcohol to manufacture benzyl cinnamate. Lipozyme TLIM was found to militarize this response extra efficiently than Novozyme 435. To enhance the yield of Benzyl Cinnamate, various media including acetone, chloroform, toluene, and isooctane were made use of in this response. Utilizing isooctane as the tool, the reaction showed high yields. On top of that, the impacts of a number of parameters such as water activity as well as response temperature level on the reaction were likewise analyzed. It has actually been pointed out that too much benzyl alcohol hinders the activity of lipase. Under the optimal problems, the highest yield of Benzyl Cinnamate was 97.3% militarized by lipase. In addition, reusability experiments of the enzyme revealed that Lipozyme TLIM maintained 63% of its preliminary task after three cycles. These results have basic effects for the growth of an industrial procedure for the preparation of benzyl cinnamate.

Environmental Fate/Exposure Summary for Benzyl Cinnamate

The production and also use Benzyl Cinnamate in man-made flavors and also fragrances, largely as a fixative, may cause its launch into the environment through various waste streams. If launched into air, the estimated vapor pressure at 25 ° C is 1X10-5 mm Hg, indicating that Benzyl Cinnamate will certainly be present in both the vapor as well as particulate stages. Benzyl cinnamate in the gas phase is broken down in the ambience by response with photochemically created hydroxyl radicals; the air half-life of Benzyl Cinnamate is estimated to be 14 hrs for the cis isomer and 13 hrs for the trans isomer. The particulate phase of benzyl cinnamate will be removed from the atmosphere by damp and completely dry settling. Based upon an estimated Koc of 10,400, Benzyl Cinnamate is not expected to be mobile if launched into dirt. Based upon the estimated Henry’s Legislation constant of 3.3X10-7 atm-cu m/mole, volatilization from moist soil surfaces is not expected to be a significant fate process. Based on its vapor stress, benzyl cinnamate is not anticipated to vaporize from dry dirt surfaces. If launched to water, Benzyl Cinnamate is anticipated to adsorb right into put on hold solids and debris based on its approximated Koc. Volatilization from water is not expected to be a vital destiny procedure on the surface based on approximated Henry’s legislation constants for this substance. The estimated BCF was 270, indicating a high bioconcentration potential for water organisms. The base-catalyzed second hydrolysis price constant was estimated to be 3.8X10-2 L/mole-sec making use of framework estimate; this represents half-lives of 6 years as well as 211 days at pH 7 and also 8, specifically. Job-related exposure to benzyl cinnamate can take place with inhalation and facial contact with the compound in work environments where Benzyl Cinnamate is produced or utilized. Products that use Benzyl Cinnamate as a flavor or fragrance fixative might get to customers.

Benzyl Cinnamate and Its Antioxidant Activity and Toxicity Evaluation

In this work, the enzymatic production of Benzyl Cinnamate using the immobilized lipase NS88011 was optimized and its biological properties were evaluated. The optimized conditions of the system were 1:3 (acid:alcohol) molar ratio, 59 ℃, biocatalyst concentration of 4.4 mg.mL -1 for 32 h, and the yield was 97.6 %. Enzyme stability studies showed that the enzyme remained active and yielded above 60% until the 13th cycle (416 hours), showing a promising half-life. In determining the antioxidant activity of this ester, the inhibitory concentration required to inhibit 50% of the free radical 2,2-diphenyl-1-picryl-hydrazino DPPH (IC50) was observed to be 149.8 mg.mL-1. The lethal doses (LD 50 ) of the ester and cinnamic acid of acutely toxic Artemia against biological indicators were 0.07 and 436.7 μg.mL -1, respectively, indicating that Benzyl Cinnamate has high toxicity, indicating potential cytotoxicity to human tumors active.
