Phenethyl phenylacetate Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

Colorless to pale yellow liquid or crystalline solid

Chemical Properties

Phenylethyl Phenylacetate has been identified in, for example, the flower concrete of Michelia champaca L. It is a colorless liquid or in the form of crystals (mp 26.5°C), which have a heavy, sweet, rose or hyacinth odor and a distinct honey note. The ester is used particularly in floral fragrance compositions and as a fixative.

Chemical Properties

Phenethyl phenylacetate has a heavy, sweet, floral and balsamic odor, somewhat rosy and a sweet, honey-like flavor.

Occurrence

Has apparently not been reported to occur in nature.

Uses

Phenethyl Phenylacetate is a flavoring agent that is a colorless or pale yellow liquid, with an odor resembling roses and hyacinth, which becomes solid at <26°c (78.8°f). it is soluble in alcohol, insol- uble in water. it is obtained by chemical synthesis.

Preparation

By esterification of phenylacetic acid with phenethyl alcohol in the presence of H2SO4; also by direct esterification in the presence of gaseous HCl.

Taste threshold values

Taste characteristics at 25 ppm: honey, floral, green, rose, cocoa, hay and tropical body.

Safety Profile

Moderately toxic by ingestion. Combustible liquid. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. See also ESTERS.
