What is Citronellol Inci?

Citronellol Inci, also known as vanillyl alcohol, also known as β-androcallisol, is mainly derived from essential oils such as rose, lemongrass, geranium, eucalyptus, and lemon balm, and also contains a small amount of citronella in high-grade ginger essential oil. alcohol. Citronellol Inci is an acyclic monoterpenoid, the simplest type of monoterpene alcohol, used to formulate a variety of fragrances, perfumes, and has a more elegant rose aroma than geraniol. In addition, Citronellol Inci has been clinically proven to have multiple pharmacological activities for anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, analgesic, and cholesterol lowering. Citronellol Inci is also an important intermediate in the total synthesis of various chiral compounds.

Citronellol Inci Uses

  1. Citronellol InciGB 2760-96 stipulates that the edible flavors are enabled to be utilized. For the preparation of a selection of tastes, a variety of uses.
  2. Citronellol Inci is utilized to make geraniol or citronellal as well as is additionally made use of as a pesticide, mosquito repellent and soap significance.
  3. Citronellol Inci is commonly utilized in the prep work of fragrance essence, soap and also cosmetic essence.
  4. Citronellol Inci is the base aroma of rose-type essence, and it is additionally generally used to sweeten the scent of flowers, such as lily of the valley, lavender, osmanthus and various other scents. It is used to prepare a selection of heavy and also floral fragrances. It is commonly used in combination with geraniol, geraniol and phenylethyl alcohol to develop a rose base. It can likewise be used in edible flavors such as roses, strawberries, raspberries and various other berries, citrus fruits, as well as peaches.
  5. Citronellol Inci is drawn out from geraniol, an usual taste and flavor utilized in winemaking; likewise made use of to fend off bugs.
  6. Citronellol Inci is one of the most generally utilized scent and is most appropriate for increased fragrance. It can additionally be utilized as a citrus scent as well as a raw material for many citronellol esters, and can be utilized to produce hydroxydihydrocitronellol and then hydroxydihydrocitronella. aldehyde. Citronellol is an important resources for the preparation of numerous rose-based floral significances, and also can be made use of in almost all cosmetics. As an edible flavor, according to the arrangements of Japan’s “Food Additives Authorities Publication”, the purity is needed to be more than 94%, and it should not be used for purposes other than flavor.

Citronellol Inci Production Method

(1) D- and racemic Citronellol Inci are manufactured from the citronellal moiety in essential oils. D-citronellal obtained by distillation from Java vanilla oil is converted into D-citronellol by contact hydrogenation with Raney nickel catalyst. Likewise, racemic Citronellol Inci is obtained from the racemic citronellal moiety in lemon eucalyptus oil.
(2) Manufactured from dextro- or racemic geraniol in essential oils. Geranium sinensis obtained from Java citronella oil is obtained by catalytic hydrogenation, followed by fractional distillation. Select Raney cobalt as a catalyst to hydrogenate the 2-position double bond.
(3) It is obtained by partial hydrogenation of the mixture of synthetic geraniol and nerol; or it is produced by reacting isopropanol with copper siglate activated by barium under pressure at 180°C. The yield of this method was 90%.
(4) Manufacture of L-Citronellol Inci from optically active pinene. Hydrogenation of α- or β-pinene to (-)-cis-pinene, thermal cracking into (+)-3,7-dimethyl-1,6-octadiene, with triisobutylaluminum or two Isobutylaluminum hydride, and then the resulting aluminum alkoxide is oxidized and hydrolyzed to obtain Citronellol Inci with a purity of 97%.

Citronellol Inci Ecological Information

The manufacturing and also use Citronellol Inci as an intermediate in the synthesis of various other fragrance chemicals and as a flavor compound in food may result in its release into the environment with various waste streams. Its usage as a fragrance component in fragrances, soaps, cleaning agents and also other home products will lead to its direct launch into the setting. Citronellol Inci has actually been identified as a component in tobacco smoke. Citronellol Inci is extensively discovered in nature. If launched right into air, the estimated vapor stress at 25 ° C is 0.02 mm Hg, showing that Citronellol Inci will certainly exist in the environment just as a vapor. Gas-phase citronellol will certainly deteriorate in the atmosphere by response with photochemically created hydroxyl radicals; the half-life of this reaction in air is estimated to be 2.3 hrs.

Citronellol Inci additionally breaks down in the environment by reacting with ozone and also nitrate radicals. The half-lives for the reaction with ozone as well as nitrate are estimated to be 1.1 hours and also 4 minutes, specifically. Nitrate is the primary atmospheric oxidant during the night in a lot of climatic settings, consequently, nocturnal destruction appears to be the primary destiny of citronellol. Citronellol takes in at wavelengths > 290 nm as well as therefore might be vulnerable to guide photolysis by sunshine. Citronellol is anticipated to have reduced movement if launched into soil, based on an approximated Koc of 94. Based on the estimated Henry’s Legislation constant of 2.1X10-5 atm-cu m/, volatilization from damp soil surface areas is anticipated to be an essential destiny procedure mole. Even at common temperature level and stress, the ambient vapour pressure is low, but the smell can still be scented; as a result, Citronellol Inci might evaporate from dry soils. Making Use Of the OECD 301F test, a theoretical body of 80-90% was achieved within 4 weeks, indicating that biodegradation is a vital environmental destiny procedure for soil as well as water. Citronellol Inci is also identified as conveniently eco-friendly by the outcomes of the Citronellol OECD 301C Examination (Customized MITI), with Citronellol Inci getting to a 65% biodegradation price after 28 days.

If launched right into water, Citronellol Inci is not anticipated to adsorb into suspended solids and also debris based upon the approximated Koc. Volatilization from water is anticipated to be an essential destiny process from the surface based upon the estimated Henry’s Regulation constant for this substance. The approximated volatilization half-lives for the version river and also version lake are 2.4 days and 21 days, respectively. The approximated BCF was 177, suggesting a high bioconcentration capacity for water microorganisms. Hydrolysis is not anticipated to be an important ecological fate procedure because this compound lacks useful groups to hydrolyze under ambient problems. Photooxidation may happen in surface water revealed to sunshine. Occupational exposure to citronellol can happen with breathing and also dermal direct exposure to this compound in offices where Citronellol Inci is produced or made use of. Tracking as well as make use of information show that the general population might be exposed to Citronellol Inci via breathing of ambient air, ingestion of food and drinking water, as well as dermal contact with customer items including Citronellol Inci.
