What is Geranyl Acetate?

Geranyl acetate, also known as geranyl acetate or (E)-3,7-dimethyl-2,6-octadien-1-ol acetate, is a substance with a sweet and gentle aroma reminiscent of rose, bergamot, and lavender. It is an essential component in the production of rose fragrances and is considered one of the most important geranyl esters. This compound is naturally found in aromatic oils such as camphor oil, ylang-ylang oil, neroli oil, and others. It can be extracted from these oils or synthesized from geraniol.

Geranyl Acetate Application

Flavor and Fragrance Industry: Geranyl Acetate is a commonly used fragrance ingredient in the manufacture of floral and fruity perfumes, soaps, skin care products and cosmetics.

Cosmetic industry: Geranyl Acetate is commonly used in skin care products and cosmetics. It has calming and antibacterial effects, and can promote skin renewal and make the skin smoother and more delicate.

Pharmaceutical industry: Geranyl Acetate has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and can be used to prepare drugs, such as anti-inflammatory drugs, antibacterial drugs, etc.

Food industry: Geranyl Acetate can also be used as a food additive, often used in candies, chocolates, beverages and other products to impart aromatic flavor to food.

Agricultural industry: Geranyl Acetate can also be used as an insect control agent to repel pests and protect crops.

Geranyl Acetate Preparation

Report 1:
To prepare geranyl acetate, 14.48g of acetic acid and 30.84g of geraniol were mixed in a three-necked flask. 5g of an acidic functionalized ionic liquid catalyst was added, and the mixture was stirred under reflux. Water was separated using a water separator, and the reaction occurred at 110°C for 2 hours. The mixture was then cooled and extracted with ether. The recovered catalyst was the raffinate. The ether was recovered under reduced pressure and distilled to obtain geranyl acetate.

Report 2:
A SO42-/TiO2-SiO2 solid super acid catalyst was prepared by mixing 4.0g of titanium sulfate with 2.0g of ethyl orthosilicate through the sol-gel method. The resulting precipitate was soaked in 0.5mol/L sulfuric acid for 5 hours, dried at 120°C, and roasted at 550°C for 4 hours. In a round-bottomed flask, 3.08g of natural geraniol, 0.05g of the prepared solid super acid catalyst, and 4.04g of acetic anhydride were combined. The mixture was heated in an oil bath at 50°C with electromagnetic stirring for 1 hour. The temperature was then slowly increased to 90°C, and water, acetic acid, and remaining acetic anhydride were distilled away under a vacuum of 50mmHg. The distillation was completed when acetic acid was completely removed, as confirmed with wet PH test paper. The mixture was suction-filtered, dried, and washed with petroleum ether. After recovering the petroleum ether through distillation, the solid was volatilized to remove any remaining solvent. The final product, geranyl acetate (94.5% purity), was obtained under vacuum and temperature conditions of 50mmHg and 90°C, respectively. The isomerization by-product content was 0.2%.
