What is N-Octanal?

N-Octanal, the full name is n-octanal, is an organic compound with a chemical formula of C8H16O and a molecular weight of 128.21 g/mol. It belongs to the straight-chain aldehydes, that is, an octane (a saturated aliphatic hydrocarbon containing eight carbon atoms) derivatives with an aldehyde group (-CHO) at the end. N-Octyl aldehyde is a colorless to light yellow liquid at room temperature with a strong and typical aliphatic aldehyde odor. This odor is often described as the aroma of citrus or green leafy vegetables, so it is widely used in the perfume and spice industry. has important applications.

N-Octanal Uses

Flavors and fragrances industry
N-Octanal is one of the indispensable raw materials in the synthetic fragrance industry because of its fresh, citrus or green leaf-like aroma characteristics. It is widely used in the preparation of various high-end perfumes, personal care products (such as soap, shampoo, shower gel) and household cleaning products, especially for simulating natural floral and fruity fragrances such as rose, orange blossom, lemon and so on. By cleverly combining with other fragrance ingredients, N-Octanal can enhance the overall layering and persistence of fragrance.

Food industry
In the food industry, N-Octanal is used as a flavoring to enhance the natural flavor of foods and beverages. It can simulate or enhance the aroma of fruits, vegetables, meat and other foods, and enhance the sensory experience of the product.

N-octanal can also be used as an insect attractant or pheromone component in agriculture to monitor or control specific pest populations, such as attracting and capturing certain fruit flies or other agricultural pests, reducing the use of pesticides and achieving a more environmentally friendly environment. Pest Management Strategies.

Organic Synthesis
In organic synthesis, N-Octanal is an important intermediate. It can be converted into n-octanol through hydrogenation and reduction, or further oxidized to obtain n-octanoic acid. Both compounds are important chemical raw materials and are widely used in plastics, coatings, textile treatment agents, lubricants, cosmetics manufacturing and other fields. In addition, N-Octanal can also be used as a starting material for the synthesis of other higher aldehydes, ketones, esters and other compounds.

Laboratory reagents and analytical standards
As a high-purity chemical standard, N-Octanal is used in laboratories to calibrate analytical instruments such as gas chromatographs and mass spectrometers to help conduct qualitative and quantitative analysis of compounds. Its unique physical and chemical properties make it a standard reference material for the detection and analysis of volatile organic compounds in the environment.

N-Octanal’s Outstanding Applications in Cosmetics

Fragrance: n-octanal is often used as a fragrance ingredient in cosmetics because of its fresh, citrus and green leaf aroma. It can add a unique fresh scent to the product, or imitate the aroma of natural fruits and flowers, enhancing the overall sensory experience of cosmetics. In perfumes, skin care products, shower gels, shampoos and other products, N-Octanal can work synergistically with other fragrance ingredients to create a well-defined, long-lasting and pleasant aroma.

Skin feel adjustment: Although its direct application as a skin feel adjuster is not as common as its fragrance effect, the specific chemical properties of N-Octanal may help to adjust the skin feel of cosmetics, such as improving the smoothness and ductility of the product, making it The product spreads easier on the skin, improving user comfort during use.

Antioxidant: Although it is not its main function, some aldehyde compounds have certain antioxidant properties. In theory, N-Octanal may assist in providing slight antioxidant protection in cosmetic formulas, helping to extend the service life of cosmetics or assist in resistance. Free radical damage to skin aging. However, in practical applications, this effect is weak, and other more powerful antioxidants are usually needed.

N-Octanal Advantages

Strong unique aroma: n-octanal has a fresh, slightly citrus and green leafy characteristic aroma. This unique smell makes it an indispensable ingredient when formulating flavors and fragrances. In fragrances, personal care products and household cleaners, n-octanal provides a long-lasting and pleasant aroma experience, enhancing product appeal.

Good compatibility and stability: As an organic compound, n-octanal has good chemical stability and is easily compatible with other fragrance ingredients or raw materials in cosmetic formulas. It will not easily react chemically, which ensures its use in formulas. stability and product durability.

Biodegradability: Compared with some synthetic fragrance ingredients, n-octanal has better biodegradability, which means that its residual time in the environment is relatively short and has less impact on the environment, which is in line with modern green chemistry and The trend of sustainable development.

Versatility: In addition to its applications in the fragrance and cosmetics industries, N-Octanal is also an important organic synthesis intermediate and can be used to produce other chemicals, such as n-octanol through reduction reactions, or further converted into esters, acids etc. These compounds are widely used in many industrial fields such as plastics, coatings, medicines, and pesticides.

Easy to purify and analyze: The chemical properties of n-octanal make it easy to purify through distillation, crystallization, etc. under laboratory conditions. At the same time, its unique infrared spectrum, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and other characteristics facilitate component analysis and quality control. , to ensure product quality.
