Hexyl benzoate Usage And Synthesis

Description

Hexyl benzoate has a woody-green, piney balsamic odor. Hexyl benzoate may be synthesized by esterification of n-hexanol with benzoic acid under azeotropic conditions.

Chemical Properties

Hexyl benzoate has a woody-green, piney, balsamic odor

Chemical Properties

Hexyl Benzoate is a liquid with a balsamic, green, melon-like odor. It is used in perfumery.

Occurrence

Reported found in lingonberry, peach, apricot, Parmesan cheese, butter, black tea, yellow passion fruit, sopadilla fruit (Achras sapota L.) and Roman chamomile oil.

Uses

Hexyl benzoate is used as a fragrance for soaps, perfumes, and creams.

Preparation

By esterification of n-hexanol with benzoic acid under azeotropic conditions

General Description

Clear colorless liquid.

Air & Water Reactions

Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Hexyl benzoate is an ester. Esters react with acids to liberate heat along with alcohols and acids. Strong oxidizing acids may cause a vigorous reaction that is sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products. Heat is also generated by the interaction of esters with caustic solutions. Flammable hydrogen is generated by mixing esters with alkali metals and hydrides.

Fire Hazard

Hexyl benzoate is probably combustible.
