What is Ethyl Octanoate?

Ethyl octanoate is a colorless clear liquid, sometimes slightly yellowish, with a pineapple-like scent as well as a wonderful taste. The boiling point is 208.5 ° C. Insoluble in water, however easily soluble in ethanol, ether, chloroform, almost insoluble in propylene glycol. It creates an azeotropic combination with water, the azeotropic point is 98.25 ° C, and also the web content is 18%. It is prepared by home heating octanoic acid and ethanol under the catalysis of a small amount of focused sulfuric acid. It can be utilized as a flavor agent for orange, strawberry, pineapple as well as various other seasonings. Ethyl octanoate is a sort of flavoring that is allowed to be made use of according to GB2760-96. It is mostly utilized to prepare flavors such as milk, cheese, apple as well as pineapple white wine, brandy, as well as rum. It is originated from the esterification of caprylic acid as well as ethanol.

Ethyl Octanoate Uses

Ethyl Octanoate, as a sucrose by-product, is a polyalcohol-type non-ionic surfactant with excellent performance, security, non-toxicity, no peculiar smell, no contamination, no side effects, no irritability to the body, great security, and also total biodegradability representative. It can successfully reduce the surface stress of water, as well as has superb performance in wetting, dispersing, solubilizing, frothing, emulsifying, and detergency. At the same time, it also has insecticidal and also anti-bacterial residential or commercial properties. As a result, it has solid versatility and a variety of applications. Presently, it has actually been commonly made use of in food market, daily chemical industry, pharmaceutical sector, fabric, agriculture as well as animal husbandry and also other areas, particularly as emulsifier, dispersant, lathering representative, wetting representative as well as cleaner in food industry; daily use Chemical cosmetics, cleaning agents, and so on.

Today invention CN200910029594.8 recommends a new ultrasonic synthesis process of Ethyl Octanoate, and also manufactures high-monoesterified sucrose octanoate with high return. The item has good hydrophilicity and also thermal security. Technical system of the here and now development: a sort of ultrasonic synthesis method of octanoic acid sucrose ester, take sucrose and octanoic acid ethyl ester as basic material, potassium carbonate is as stimulant to accomplish acylation reaction, the molar proportion of sucrose as well as octanoic acid ethyl ester is 2-2.5: 1, with Dimethyl sulfoxide is the response solvent, the substrate sucrose focus is controlled to be 1mol/L, the response temperature is 70-80 ° C, the driver make up 9%-13% of the mass fraction of ethyl octanoate, and the reaction stress is 11kPa. Ultrasonic response in an ultrasonic cleanser with a power of 100W as well as a functioning regularity of 40KHz for 2h. After the reaction coatings, the majority of the solvent is evaporated under reduced pressure, and the purification residue is dissolved in sodium chloride solution as well as n-butanol remedy with a mass focus of 25% under mixing, and the V/V=1:1 of sodium chloride solution: n-butanol, liquid splitting up, the organic stage was cleaned two times with a small amount of water, dried out over anhydrous Na2SO4, as well as the solvent was eliminated, as well as the deposit was cleaned two times with ethyl acetate, after that dried out in vacuo at 45 ° C to consistent weight to get a white waxy strong with a yield of 75 % of sucrose octanoate. CN200910029594.8 manufactured Ethyl Octanoate with a high return by embracing an eco-friendly synthesis innovation. This method not only significantly shortens the reaction time, however also has high reaction selectivity, and also the material of monoester in the product gets to 92%. The HLB value of the manufactured Ethyl Octanoate is greater than 10, which has good hydrophilicity as well as great thermal stability, and can exist stably listed below 150 ° C.

Preparation of Ethyl Octanoate

The esterification reaction is generally a reversible response. In order to raise the return of the ester, it is necessary to divide a part from the item or make one of the parts in the reactant extreme to make the reaction progress. In the prior art, the method of purification is mainly made use of to distill the water out of the product, therefore increasing the yield of the item. But this approach will certainly eat a big amount of heating energy, which is not for power conserving. Utility version CN201320461083.5 In order to get rid of the shortages of the above technological problems, a correction tool for creating ethyl octanoate is given, which can easily eliminate the water in the product during the reaction process, so regarding achieve the objective of increasing the product yield. The technical system that solves those technological problems is as follows: the remedying gadget that is made use of to create ethyl octanoate makes up remedying column body, reboiler as well as condenser, it is characterized in that, additionally be provided with guide tube at the electrical outlet of condenser. Fig. 1 is the structural representation of the present utility model; Fig. 2 is the architectural depiction of rectifying tower in the present utility design; Among the figure: 1 is tower body, 2 is condenser, 3 is reboiler, 4 is overview tube, 11 12 is the reflux liquid inlet, 13 is the spray gadget, 14 is the filler, 15 is the return port of the reboiler, as well as 16 is the material inlet.

In the technological option of the utility model, the rectification tower embraces a packed tower, which can fully mix the reactants. The metal corrugated organized packaging has the attributes of little resistance, uniform gas-liquid distribution, high effectiveness, huge power, as well as no evident boosting effect., pressure decrease as well as big change advantages. The tube-and-tube warm exchanger has a fairly basic structure, compactness, and low cost, which can reduce operating costs. A draft tube is set up at the outlet of the condenser. Because the product ethyl octanoate is insoluble in water and also its high quality is lighter than water, the condensate at the electrical outlet of the condenser remains in two stages of water as well as oil. In order to ensure that the reaction continues in the favorable direction, during the reaction procedure, the guide tube gets rid of the water in the item as well as no more joins the reflux response. Thus the response time can additionally be decreased, the manpower and material resources are conserved, and the return of the item ethyl octanoate is enhanced simultaneously.

Content of Ethyl Octanoate in Luzhou-Flavor Liquor

1. Ethyl Octanoate is an important substance in Luzhou-flavor liquor. Its aroma intensity value (OAV) is second only to ethyl caproate among esters, and it is higher than ethyl butyrate, ethyl acetate, Ethyl lactate is larger.

2. Although the content of Ethyl Octanoate in Luzhou-flavor liquor is very small, the GC-O analysis results show that its aroma score reaches 2.5 points, which makes an important contribution to the flavor of the liquor.

3. Two sets of experiments have proved that Ethyl Octanoate has a good complex effect on the aroma of the wine body at low concentrations, but when the concentration is further increased, it shows a strong inhibitory effect on other aroma components. The appropriate concentration range Between 30~40mg/L.

4. According to the research of two professors Xu Yan and Fan Wenlai from Jiangnan University, ethyl octanoate is also an important aroma component in Fen-flavor liquor, and its aroma intensity ranks first in the aroma components of Fen-flavor liquor. In Feng-flavor liquor, ethyl octanoate Ester is also an important flavor compound, which is consistent with this study. It can be seen that ethyl octanoate is an important flavor compound with certain common characteristics in Chinese liquor, and it exists in Chinese liquor with different flavor types and different processes, and does not belong to a certain flavor compound. It is unique to craft or flavor liquor. Therefore, it is very necessary for liquor production and scientific research workers to further study the formation mechanism of ethyl octanoate and its precursor octanoic acid, so as to promote the further development of liquor industry and carry forward the traditional industry of our Chinese nation.
