What is Geranyl Acetate?

Geranyl acetate, also known as geranyl acetate or geranyl acetate,
Natural geranyl acetate exists in natural aromatic oils such as camphor oil, ylang ylang oil, neroli oil, orange leaf oil, citronella oil, coriander seed oil, lemongrass oil, etc., and can be extracted from it, or after extracting geraniol. Synthesize again.

Geranyl Acetate Uses

  1. Geranyl Acetate is defined as an allowed flavoring. Mostly used to prepare flavors such as apples, pears and berries.
  2. Geranyl Acetate is made use of to formulate floral fragrances such as rose.
  3. Geranyl Acetate is functional and also offered in both floral as well as fruity formulas. It is commonly utilized in various climbed essences to sweeten and also change. It is intensified with lily of the valley, vanilla, ylang-ylang, asian, as well as also grass-flavored as well as other tastes, as well as has a harmonious sweetening result.
  4. Geranyl Acetate is pleasant as well as tranquil, with the fragrance of rose, bergamot as well as lavender. It is the raw material needed for all increased flavor flavors and also is one of the most important range of geranyl esters.

Preparation of Geranyl Acetate

report one,
Take 14.48g of acetic acid and 30.84g of geraniol, mix them uniformly and add them into a three-necked flask, add 5g of acidic functionalized ionic liquid catalyst, heat under reflux and stir, use a water separator to separate water, react at 110 °C for 2 hours, and extract with ether after cooling , the raffinate is the recovered catalyst, the ether is recovered under reduced pressure, and the geranyl acetate is obtained by distillation.

report two,
Catalyst preparation method: Weigh 4.0g of titanium sulfate and 2.0g of ethyl orthosilicate. Under the condition of ultrasonic assistance, the ultrasonic frequency is 40KHZ, and the co-co-polymer of Ti(OH)4 and Si(OH)4 is prepared by sol-gel method. Precipitation, then impregnated with 0.5mol/L sulfuric acid for 5 hours, dried at 120°C, and calcined at 550°C for 4 hours to obtain SO42-/TiO2-SiO2 solid super acid.

3.08g of natural geraniol (content 93.8%), 0.05g of SO42-/TiO2-SiO2 solid superacid and 4.04g of acetic anhydride were placed in a round-bottomed flask, heated in an oil bath under electromagnetic stirring and heated to 50°C to maintain this The temperature is 1 hour, connected to the vacuum distillation equipment of the water pump, the vacuum degree is 50mmHg, and the temperature is slowly raised to 90 ℃ to distill off the water, acetic acid and the remaining acetic anhydride generated by the reaction. Use a moist pH test paper to check whether the acetic acid is removed, and the distillation is completed. After cooling to room temperature, suction filtration, dry the solid, wash the solid with petroleum ether, distill the filtrate with a rotary evaporator to recover the petroleum ether, remove the petroleum ether by natural volatilization of the solid, put it in an oven, dry it, and use it for the next reaction. Under the condition of vacuum degree of 50mmHg and temperature of 90℃, 4.35g of geranyl acetate was obtained by distillation (the content of geranyl acetate was 94.5%, and the content of isomerized by-products was 0.2%).

Application of Geranyl Acetate

CN03150555.4 discloses a synthesis method of geraniolgeraniol.
The method is as follows: using geranyl acetate as a raw material, firstly in a solvent dichloromethane, the (E)-methyl group of geranyl acetate is selectively oxidized by using selenium dioxide-tert-butyl hydroperoxide binary oxidant, A mixed oxidation product of trans (E formula) allylic carbonylation and hydroxylation is obtained; then, sodium borohydride is used for reduction in methanol to obtain a single oxidation product, geranyl 8-hydroxyacetate. The trans-8-hydroxyacetate geranyl ester is reacted with phosphorus tribromide in anhydrous ether in the presence of pyridine to obtain the trans-8-bromoacetate geranyl ester. Then, in N,N-dimethylformamide, in the presence of potassium tert-butoxide, geranyl sulfone and trans-8-bromoacetate geraniol are condensed to obtain 9-sulfonylgeranylgeraniol. 9-sulfonylgeranylgeraniol, using lithium in methylamine to reductively remove the sulfone group to obtain the target product geranylgeraniol. The invention is a synthetic method with cheap and easy-to-obtain reagents and mild reaction conditions.

Geranyl Acetate Environmental Fate/Exposure Summary

The production and use of geranyl acetate as a flavoring and scent may lead to its release into the atmosphere with various waste streams. Geranyl acetate is a component of vital oils. If launched into the air, the estimated vapor pressure at 25 ° C is 3.3X10-2 mm Hg, which shows that geranyl acetate will just exist in the environment as a vapor. Gas-phase geranyl acetate is degraded in the environment by response with photochemically produced hydroxyl radicals; the half-life of this reaction in air is approximated to be 2 hrs. Geranyl acetate does include a chromophore that soaks up at wavelengths > 290 nm as well as hence might be vulnerable to guide photolysis by sunlight. If launched right into soil, geranyl acetate is anticipated to be somewhat mobile based on an estimated Koc of 3,700. Based on the estimated Henry’s Legislation constant of 2.4X10-3 atm-cu m/mole, volatilization from moist soil surface areas is expected to be an important destiny process. However, adsorption to dirt is expected to undermine volatilization. No biodegradation information. If launched to the approximated Koc, geranyl acetate is anticipated to adsorb into put on hold solids and also debris.

Based on the approximated Henry’s Legislation constant for this compound, volatilization from the water surface is expected to be an important destiny process. The estimated volatilization half-lives for the model river as well as version lake are 7.4 hrs and also 6.5 days, respectively. However, unpredictable columns at the water surface are expected to be damaged by adsorption to suspended solids as well as debris in the water. If adsorption is thought about, the estimated volatilization half-life for the design fish pond is one month. The approximated BCF is 260, indicating a high capacity for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms. Hydrolysis is anticipated based on estimated second hydrolysis half-lives of 231 and 23 days at pH values of 7 and 8, respectively. Job-related exposure to geranyl acetate may occur via inhalation and dermal exposure to the substance in workplaces where geranyl acetate is generated or made use of. Surveillance information recommend that the basic population may be subjected to geranyl acetate via inhalation, ingestion of food, and also facial contact with this compound and various other consumer products consisting of geranyl acetate.
