What is Delta-Dodecalactone?

Delta-Dodecalactone is a viscous liquid that ranges in color from colorless to yellow. It possesses a delightful coconut fruit fragrance and emits a creamy scent when present in low concentrations. This compound has a flash point of 66℃ and displays minimal solubility in water. However, it exhibits high solubility in ethanol, propanol, and vegetable oil.

Delta-Dodecalactone Uses

Delta-Dodecalactone is an approved food flavoring that can be used in compliance with GB 2760-96 regulations. It is commonly utilized in the preparation of margarine, peach, coconut, and pear flavors.

Additionally, this compound finds application in a variety of fruit flavors such as apricot, honey, and cheese. It is also used in cream chocolate and dairy products. Mainly employed in the food industry, Delta-Dodecalactone serves as a high-quality flavoring agent for both luxury and everyday food products, as well as other functional additives.

Delta-Dodecalactone Synthesis Method

Delta-Dodecalactone is a key ingredient in cream flavors and its extraction from plants is not cost-effective. Therefore, the synthesis of S-laurolactone is highly significant in the food industry. There are two main methods for synthesizing δ-dodecanolide: one involves synthesizing the intermediate 2-heptylcyclopentanone and then oxidizing it to obtain δ-dodecanolide, while the other involves synthesizing S-hydroxy acid through various methods and then forming a ring to obtain δ-laurolactone. Currently, the industrial production of δ-laurolactone primarily utilizes the oxidation method of the intermediate 2-heptylcyclopentanone.

The industrial production of Delta-Dodecalactone currently relies on 2-heptylcyclopentanone as the raw material and is prepared using peroxyacid or high-concentration hydrogen peroxide with the addition of an acid accelerator. However, using peroxyacid as the oxidizing agent has several disadvantages:

1. The preparation of such oxidants requires the use of high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide, which poses transportation and handling risks.

2. The reaction results in the formation of a significant amount of organic carboxylic acid or carboxylate waste, which needs to be recycled or treated.

3. Organic peroxyacids are highly dangerous during use and are inconvenient to transport and store, limiting their application in industrial production.

4. Other disadvantages include low selectivity, difficulty in separating reaction products, and negative environmental impact.

A synthesis method for Delta-Dodecalactone using 2-heptylcyclopentanone as the raw material is characterized by the following steps: adding 2-heptylcyclopentanone into a three-necked flask, slowly adding hydrogen peroxide, adding a catalyst, and stirring the reaction. The mixture is then filtered using a glass funnel to remove the catalyst. The filtrate is left to separate the organic phase, which is washed with sodium bicarbonate aqueous solution and water until neutral. The aqueous phase is neutralized using sodium bicarbonate aqueous solution until weakly alkaline. The organic phase is then extracted with ethyl acetate, and the ethyl acetate extract is combined with the organic phase and evaporated under vacuum using a rotary evaporator. The catalyst used can be phosphodrylic acid or silica gel-supported phosphodrylic acid.
