What is Rose Ether?

Rose ether, also known as oxidized rose, 2-(2-methyl-1-propenyl)-4-methyltetrahydropyran, is an important spice, its appearance is colorless to light yellow liquid, with rose and Aroma of fresh bay leaves. Natural rose ether exists in flowers, fruits, wine and insect secretions, Bulgarian rose oil, and geranium oil. Rose ether has cis and trans isomers, and the aroma of the two isomers is slightly different. Among them, the cis body has a delicate aroma, and the trans body has a strong green fragrance accompanied by a spicy smell. In nature, rose ether is mainly cis Most of the rose ether products sold on the market are a mixture of cis and trans isomers.

Preparation of Rose Ether

At home and abroad, since the last century, the synthesis process of rose ether has been studied, mainly using citronellol as the raw material, and it is synthesized by oxidation. In the oxidation process, most of them used peroxide for oxidation in the past, but this method is dangerous to produce and it is difficult to control the reaction. The process may explode, and the by-products are many, the yield is low, and the cost is high, so it is gradually being eliminated. At present, the photosensitive oxidation process is emerging, and there is also research on photosensitive oxidation in China, but the technology is immature and the product yield is low, so it is difficult to scale up and implement industrialization. Therefore, the development of a new process for the oxidation synthesis of rose ether and the realization of high yield, low cost and safe production of rose ether are of great significance for promoting the scientific and technological progress of the perfume industry and meeting market demand.

CN201210535789.1 provides a photosensitive oxidation synthesis process of rose ether, which can overcome the shortcomings of the prior art.

The present invention comprises the following steps:

(1) Photosensitive oxidation of citronellol (C10H20O) to generate peroxycitronellol (C10H19OOOH). Add a certain amount of citronellol into the reaction kettle, then add 80%-99% methanol of 1.5-4 times the volume of citronellol, methylene blue powder with 0.2%-1.5% of the mass of citronellol, and stir evenly Introduce oxygen into the above-mentioned prepared solution, so that the flow rate of oxygen is controlled at 1-4kg/h, and the reaction kettle is maintained at normal pressure; at the same time, light is given by an iodine-tungsten lamp, and the light intensity on the liquid surface is 20000-80000LX, and the stirring is continued 1. Pass in condensed water and control the reaction temperature at 30°C-50°C, and make the reaction last for 10-50h. The whole reaction process is assisted by ultrasonic waves, and the cavitation effect of ultrasonic waves is used to increase the reaction speed and product yield. In this reaction, oxygen oxidizes citronellol to peroxycitronellol under the conditions of methylene blue as a catalyst and light.

(2) Peroxycitronellol is reduced to citronellol (C10H19OOH). Raise the temperature of the liquid in the reaction kettle to 40°C-50°C, recover 50%-80% methanol under reduced pressure, then add distilled water with 1.8-4.0 times the volume of citronellol and sodium sulfite with 1.0-1.5 times the mass of citronellol, and React while stirring, and the reaction continues for 6-30 hours. In this reaction, sodium sulfite reduces peroxycitronellol to citronellol, and sodium sulfite is oxidized to generate sodium sulfate. After the reaction is over, let it stand to separate the liquid layers, the lower water layer is discharged into the sewage tank, and the upper organic layer is used for standby. The upper organic layer contains a large amount of citronellol.

(3) Cyclization of citronellol under acidic conditions to generate rose oxide (C10H18O). Add citronellol volume 8%-25% and dilute sulfuric acid with a mass fraction of 3%-15% to the upper organic layer, stir and react for 5-25 hours, then add citronellol volume 4%-10% and a mass fraction of 10%-20% sodium carbonate aqueous solution, after neutralizing excess sulfuric acid, the reaction terminates naturally. Stirring is stopped, the stratification is allowed to stand, the lower water layer is discharged to the sewage tank, and the upper organic layer is dehydrated for later use. The upper organic layer contains a large amount of rose ether.

(4) Separation of rose ether. The upper organic layer is rectified, and the fractions are collected to obtain the rose ether product. In the rose ether product obtained by the invention, the total mass fraction of the rose ether cis and trans isomers is 90%-99.5%.

The present invention is characterized in that citronellol is oxidized to citronellol with oxygen under the conditions of ultrasonic assistance, catalyst and strong light, and then the rose ether is obtained through reduction and cyclization. Compared with the direct oxidation method of chemical reagents and the existing photosensitive oxidation technology, it has obvious technical advantages. First, the specificity of the reaction of this technology is good, and there are few by-products, which is very important for the synthesis of monomer fragrances. The conversion rate of the product High, the subsequent separation and purification is relatively easy; secondly, the technical process route is short, the reaction conditions are mild, and the safety is high; finally, the rose ether product produced by this technology has high purity, pure aroma and good quality.
