What is Cinnamyl Alcohol?

Cinnamyl alcohol is an organic compound that often exists in the form of esterification in styrax, Peruvian balsam, and cinnamon leaves. Heat storax in 10% sodium hydroxide solution for 5 hours, and then extract the hydrolyzate with ether Cinnamyl alcohol, finally purified by vacuum distillation to obtain cinnamyl alcohol. In pure cinnamyl alcohol, a white crystalline solid forms, but in slightly impure cinnamyl alcohol it takes the form of a yellow oil. Cinnamyl alcohol can be decomposed from styrax. Cinnamyl alcohol has a unique fragrance and is used in perfumes or deodorants.

Cinnamyl Alcohol Uses

  1. Cinnamyl alcohol is a flavor that is briefly allowed in GB 2760-96. Mostly utilized in apricot, peach, raspberry, plum and also other flavors.
  2. Cinnamyl alcohol is widely utilized in the prep work of flower tastes, cosmetic flavors and soap flavors, and is likewise used as a fixative.
  3. Cinnamyl alcohol is a food taste that is briefly allowed to be made use of in my country’s “Sanitary Requirements for using Food Additives”. It is mainly made use of to prepare fruit tastes such as strawberries, lemons, apricots, and peaches, and tastes for brandy. The quantity made use of in eating gum tissue is 720mg/kg; baked food 33mg/kg; sweet 17mg/kg; soda 8.8 mg/kg; cold beverage 8.7 mg/kg; alcohol 5.0 mg/kg.
  4. Cinnamyl alcohol has a mild, lasting and comfortable fragrance, classy scent, and also fragrance-fixing power. It is used in cosmetics, essences as well as soap significances. Typically shown to phenylacetaldehyde, it is a crucial flavor for making narcissus significance and also increased essence.

The Preparation Method of Cinnamyl Alcohol

A preparation method of Cinnamyl Alcohol is characterized in that comprising the following steps:

Dissolve potassium borohydride or sodium borohydride in an alkaline ethanol or methanol solution with a concentration of 40-60% by mass, and stir until potassium borohydride or sodium borohydride is completely dissolved to obtain a concentration of 6-28% by mass Potassium borohydride or sodium borohydride in ethanol or methanol solution, then stirred at 12 to 30°C, add potassium borohydride or borohydride to potassium borohydride or borohydride at a molar ratio of 1:2 to cinnamaldehyde Add cinnamaldehyde dropwise to the ethanol or methanol solution of sodium hydride, stir until the reduction reaction is complete, add acetone to decompose excess potassium borohydride or sodium borohydride, adjust the pH value of the solution to neutral, and raise the temperature to 100-110°C to recover ethanol or Methanol, then lower the temperature to 40-50°C, let stand and separate to obtain the crude product of Cinnamyl Alcohol.

Production Method of Cinnamyl Alcohol

Cinnamaldehyde decrease technique
Include 0.01 part of aluminum shavings to 1 part of benzyl alcohol by mass, warm to 60 ° C to react as well as release hydrogen, as well as raise the temperature to 180 ° C up until the hydrogen launch stops. The aluminum benzyl alcohol service was cooled as well as filtered and after that included in the mix of benzyl alcohol as well as cinnamaldehyde (mass 1:1). Warm to steaming under the condition of 0.0027 MPa, boil down off the benzaldehyde produced by the response at 80 ° C and also reflux ratio 3-4, and include benzyl alcohol at the same time. Quit feeding up until 95% of the theoretical amount of benzaldehyde is evaporated, as well as the staying benzyl alcohol is evaporated, and afterwards the unrefined product of Cinnamyl Alcohol is vaporized. After vacuum cleaner purification, collect 117 ° C (7kPa) fraction, which is the product.
Suhe balsam saponification technique
Cinnamyl alcohol occurs normally in balsam peru, benzoin as well as styrax in the form of lauric laurate. Warm as well as saponify Suhe balsam in 10% salt hydroxide remedy for 5 hours, then remove the hydrolyzed item cinnamyl alcohol with ether, and also finally detoxify it by vacuum purification to get the finished product of Cinnamyl Alcohol.

Production of Cinnamyl Alcohol by Three-Step Bio-Derivatization

The building and construction of biocatalytic waterfalls for the production of chemical precursors is quickly becoming one of the most effective approaches for multistep synthesis in modern-day chemistry. Nevertheless, in spite of making use of low-solvent systems and also drivers from renewable energies in the reported instances, several waterfalls still depend on petrochemical feedstocks, which are not presently available in a sustainable way. Here, we report the production of the multifunctional chemical building block cinnamyl alcohol from the significant metabolite as well as fermentation product L-phenylalanine. Through the combination of three biocatalyst classes (phenylalanine ammonia lyase, carboxylic acid reductase, and alcohol dehydrogenase), target compounds of high pureness were attained, verifiable usage at 100 mg range at ambient temperature level as well as stress at A 53% yield was accomplished in aqueous remedy. This system stands for an artificial approach in which all elements existing sometimes absolutely no are of organic beginning, thus reducing ecological damages. In addition, we prolonged this biocatalytic waterfall by including it in an L-phenylalanine overproducing pressure of Escherichia coli. This metabolically engineered pressure creates cinnamyl alcohol in a mineral tool using glycerol as well as sugar as carbon resources. This research demonstrates the potential for establishing environment-friendly paths to manufacture cinnamyl alcohol from waste streams such as glycerol from lipase-treated biodiesel.
