Cinnamyl acetate Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

clear colorless to pale yellowish liquid

Chemical Properties

Cinnamyl acetate has a characteristic balsamic-floral odor and burning, sweet taste reminiscent of pineapple. The ester obtained from natural cinnamyl alcohol exhibits a more delicate (hyacinth–jasmine-like) note.

Occurrence

Reported found in melon, starfruit, tarragon and litchi.

Uses

Cinnamyl Acetate is used in preparation and characterization of cinnamon essential oil nanocapsules and comparison of volatile components and antibacterial ability of cinnamon essential oil before and after encapsulation.

Uses

Perfumery (fixative), flavoring.

Preparation

By direct esterification of cinnamic alcohol with acetic acid (or anhydride) under azeotropic conditions (Arctander, 1969).

Definition

ChEBI: An acetate ester resulting from the formal condensation of cinnamyl alcohol with acetic acid. Found in cinnamon leaf oil.

Taste threshold values

Taste characteristics at 15 ppm: sweet, spicy, floral, cinnamon and honey with a tutti-fruitti nuance.

Synthesis Reference(s)

Journal of the American Chemical Society, 90, p. 5518, 1968 DOI: 10.1021/ja01022a034

General Description

Cinnamyl acetate is a fragrance ingredient. Palladium catalyzed allylic alkylation of cinnamyl acetate using sodium diethyl 2-methylmalonate and novel ferrocenyl Schiff base has been investigated.

Flammability and Explosibility

Nonflammable

Safety Profile

Moderately toxic by ingestion and intraperitoneal routes. A skin irritant. Combustible liquid. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and fumes. See also ALLYL COMPOUNDS.
