Ethyl 2-hydroxybenzoate Usage And Synthesis
Ethyl 2-hydroxdybenzoate is also known as Ethyl salicylate, which a kind of ester formed through the condensation between salicylic acid and ethanol. It can be used as a perfumery, artificial essence flavoring agent and used in cosmetics. It can also be used as analgesics, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic agents.
clear colourless to pale yellow liquid
Ethyl salicylate is the ester formed by the condensation of salicylic acid and ethanol. It is a clear liquid that is sparingly soluble in water, but soluble in alcohol and ether. It has a pleasant odor resembling winter green and is used in perfumery and artificial flavors.
Ethyl salicylate has a characteristic aromatic odor similar to wintergreen. It tends to darken on exposure to light and air.
Reported found in raspberry, tomato, currants, rum, whiskey, red wine, plum brandy, Cape gooseberry, Feijoa fruit, papaya and scotch.
manufacture of artificial perfumes.
Ethyl salicylate is found naturally in currants and strawberries . It is manufactured commercially by the esterification of salicylic acid with ethyl alcohol.
By esterification of salicylic acid with ethyl alcohol and concentrated H2SO4 at 100°C in the presence of aluminum sulfate; by heating to the boil an alkaline solution of salicylic acid and ethyl p-toluenesulfonate.
Taste threshold values
Taste characteristics at 10 ppm: sweet, wintergreen, spicy and anisic.
