Benzyl Salicylate Uses

  1. Edible spices allowed in GB 2760-1996. Mainly used in the preparation of apricot, peach, banana, raspberry and other flavors.
  2. Benzyl Salicylate is used as a solvent for fragrances, especially nitro musks, a fixative for artificial musks and floral fragrances; a bactericidal preservative.
  3. Benzyl Salicylate is often used as a co-solvent and a good fixative for floral and non-floral fragrances. It is suitable for carnation, ylang-ylang, jasmine, laurel, lily of the valley, lilac, tuberose, potpourri and other fragrances.

Application of Benzyl Salicylate

Benzyl salicylate, also referred to as benzyl o-hydroxybenzoate, is an anemic liquid with brownish-yellow, musk, floral, ointment and woody fragrances. It is used in food tastes such as apricot, peach, plum, banana as well as pear to enhance the scent, as well as it is also used in cosmetics as a sunscreen additive to protect the skin from ultraviolet rays.

It is utilized as a fixative in day-to-day flavors such as ylang-ylang, lily-of-the-valley, rosin, jasmine, gardenia, acacia, Suxin, carnation, lilac, as well as tuberose. It is made use of in edible tastes such as peaches, raw pears, bananas, apricots, strawberries, as well as raspberries in really percentages. Its application examples are as adheres to:

1. prepare a kind of fruit fragrance perfume preparation,
It is composed of the complying with according to mass percent: alcohol gotten by fermenting and also deodorising corn as the main resources, deionized water, fruit extract, significance, musk, benzyl salicylate as well as isopropyl myristate; The prep work method of the fruity fragrance perfume is that adding alcohol acquired by fermenting as well as ventilating corn into a reactor, adding musk and also benzyl salicylate right into a container, stirring as well as liquifying, placing it in the dark for a week, and then adding deionized water, Fruit essence, tea essence, significance and isopropyl myristate, stirred and miscible at -10 ° for 5 hrs, after that filtered, and also the filtered option was aged in between aging and 20 ° for 1 month, as well as finally the product after Chen Hua was filtered and also packaged to acquire the perfume prep work. The advantages are: that is, the alcohol smell of the perfume is subdued, the fragrance and also classy taste of the fragrance are enhanced, and also the fragrance retention impact of the fragrance is substantially enhanced.

2. prepare a type of sweet-scented osmanthus significance for water-based ink,
Calculated by weight percentage, it includes 1% -30% osmanthus essence, 5% -55% substance modified oligosaccharides and also deionized water; osmanthus essence includes β-ionone, dihydro-β-ionone, fragrant Camphor Alcohol, α-Hexyl Cinnamaldehyde, α-Amyl Cinnamaldehyde, Isoamyl Salicylate, Benzyl Salicylate, Benzyl Benzoate, Kara Musk, Citronellol, Geraniol, Cinnamyl Alcohol, Kangaroo Niangke oil, tetradecaldehyde, thiomenthone with a focus of 1% by mass, terpineol, methyl anthranilate, sweet-scented osmanthus extract, and ethanol. The here and now creation additionally provides a prep work technique of the osmanthus fragrans significance for water-based ink.

The here and now development takes on composite changed oligosaccharide as wall material, coats sweet-scented osmanthus essence to develop slow-release significance of sweet-scented osmanthus nanocapsules, thus boosting the scent retention and also water solubility essential, making it appropriate for adding scent to water-based ink. The sweet-scented osmanthus essence utilized for the water-based ink has delicate as well as lifelike fragrance, strong all-natural feeling and also durable scent.

3. prepare a type of musk essence for water-based ink,
Determined by weight percent, it contains 1%-30% musk essence, 5%-55% compound customized oligosaccharides as well as deionized water; musk essence includes cyclopentadecanolide, musk 105, Jiale musk, Tokyo Musk, Sunflower Musk, Musk T, Ambrox, Cistus Remove, Musk Sunflower Oil, Benzyl Salicylate, Sandalwood 803, Sandalwood 208, Vetiver Oil, Patchouli Oil, Methylionone, Suhe balm, indole with a mass percent concentration of 10%, geranium oil, coumarin and ethanol.

Today creation also provides the preparation approach of those musk significance for water-based ink. The composite changed oligosaccharide is used as the wall surface product, as well as the musk essence is covered to form a slow-release significance of musk nanocapsules, consequently enhancing the scent retention and water solubility of the essence. properties, making it ideal for the perfuming of water-based inks. The musk essence for water-based ink obtained by the creation has a transparent, fine and also vivid scent, as well as a lasting scent.

Preparation of Benzyl Salicylate

There are 3 methods to synthesize Benzyl Salicylate. One is to catalyze the esterification reaction between salicylic acid and benzyl alcohol, and also the other is to accomplish the esterification exchange reaction in between methyl salicylate and benzyl alcohol. The third is the phase transfer catalytic response between salicylic acid as well as benzyl chloride. Although the expense of the three approaches is lower, the pollutants generated have a greater effect on its aroma.

Under the condition of using polyethylene glycol-400 as a phase transfer catalyst, the item return is greater, but the process is made complex and also the procedure is inconvenient. Amongst tetrabutylammonium bromide, triethylbenzylammonium chloride and also polyethylene glycol-400 stage transfer catalysts, tetrabutylammonium bromide has the best catalytic effect, as well as its response time is short as well as very easy to run. industrialization.

Technique 1: Add sodium salicylate (0.25 mol, 40.2 g) and also benzyl chloride (0.1 mol, 12.6 g) to a three-necked round-bottomed flask equipped with a thermostat as well as a reflux condenser, as well as include 200mL of N, N-dimethylformamide solvent. The response mixture was magnetically stirred as well as warmed to 100 ° C for reaction. As the response advanced, white sodium chloride sped up out. After the reaction, the precipitate was gotten rid of by filtration. The filtrate was first collected by vacuum purification to gather N,N-dimethylformamide (50 ° C-51 ° C/2660Pa) for recycling, and then vacuum-distilled to accumulate 22.43 g of benzyl salicylate (170 ° C-172 ° C/533Pa), Return 98.4%.

Approach 2: Include a certain amount of benzene, salicylic acid, benzyl alcohol, DCC and DMAP to a completely dry 250 mL round-bottomed flask, immediately a white flocculent precipitate is created, as well as stand at space temperature level for 3.5 h. Suction filtration, the filtrate was cleaned a number of times with 10% Na2CO3 solution, then washed with saturated NaCl remedy up until neutral, included a certain quantity of anhydrous MgSO4, filteringed system overnight, recovered benzene by purification, after that remedied under minimized stress, gathered 205 ℃ ~ 208 ℃/ 3465 product is benzyl salicylate.

Technique 3: A brand-new approach for the synthesis of Benzyl Salicylate by solid-liquid phase transfer catalysis: take salicylate, benzyl chloride, driver An and also driver B into the reaction vessel, as well as react at 80-200 ° C for 2-20 hrs. After the reaction is completed, add water to divide the layers of the reaction remedy, separate the organic layer, after that clean, dehydrate as well as distill the natural layer in turn to gather the portion at 164-165 ° C/725 -735 (that is, a pressure value in 725-735Pa The boiling point is 164-165 DEG C fraction) to get the product; the stimulant A is one or a mix of two or more of crown ethers, crown ether by-products and also PEG200-6000; the catalyst B is an alkali steel Halogen salt; the molar proportion of the salicylate to benzyl chloride is 0.8-2:1; the molar ratio of the stimulant A to benzyl chloride is 1-10:100, and the molar ratio of the catalyst B to benzyl chloride The molar proportion is 1-10:1000.
