Vanillin Usage And Synthesis
SummaryVanillin is the artificial synthesis of the first kind of flavor, synthesized by the German M. Harman, and G - Dr. Twyman in 1874. Usually It is divided into methyl vanillin and ethyl vanillin.
1. Methyl vanillin: white or slightly yellow crystalline, with vanilla aroma and rich milk fragrance, is the largest varieties of perfume industry, is the main ingredients of universal favorite creamy vanilla flavor. Its use is very extensive, such as in food, chemical, tobacco industry as spices, flavoring agent or a flavor enhancer, which is the majority in food consumption of drinks, candy, cakes, biscuits, bread and roasted seeds. There are no relevant reports that vanillin was harmful to the human body.
2. Ethyl vanillin: white to micro yellow needle crystal or crystalline powder, similar to vanilla beans, aroma than methyl vanillin thicker. It is a broad-spectrum flavors, which is one of the world's most important synthetic spice, is an important and indispensable raw material for food additives industry. The aroma is 3-4 times than the vanillin, with aromas of vanilla bean aroma and long-lasting fragrance. Widely used in food, chocolate, ice cream, drinks and cosmetics play aroma and flavour. Also ethyl vanillin also is feed additives, electroplating industry of brightening agent, the pharmaceutical industry of intermediates. C. Guaiacol glyoxylate route By using guaiacol and glyoxylic acid as raw material then by condensation, oxidation and decarboxylation made to vanillin. This method is mainly composed of French Rhone-Poulenc company research and development, and production in large scale. The use of glyoxylic acid from maleic acid methyl ester was prepared by two ozone decomposition (German patent 3224795). The synthetic route has the advantages of wide material source, less reaction steps, low cost, less three wastes pollution. Therefore, it is considered to be the most appropriate method.
Vanilla extractVanilla is a member of the orchid family, a sprawling conglomeration of some 25,000 different species. Vanilla is a native of South and Central America and the Caribbean; and the first people to have cultivated it seem to have been the Totonacs of Mexico’s east coast. The Aztecs acquired vanilla when they conquered the Totonacs in the 15th Century; the Spanish, in turn, got it when they conquered the Aztecs.
Vanilla is a complex blend of flavour and fragrance ingredients extracted from the seed pods of the vanilla orchid, containing at a guess somewhere between 250 and 500 different flavor and fragrance components. The most important ingredient in this blend is vanillin. However, because of the cost and supply chain variability of natural vanilla, most products that want to impart the aroma of vanilla do not in fact use vanilla but rather synthetic vanillin (99% of all vanillin consumed worldwide) made primarily from petrochemicals or chemically derived from lignin.
Vanillin is mainly used as a flavouring agent, primarily in foods and beverages such as chocolate and dairy products, but also to mask unpleasant tastes in medicines or livestock fodder. It is also an intermediate in the manufacture of certain pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals.

Vanillin and vanilla extracts have an estimated annual total volume of 16,000 metric tonnes, worth some USD 650 million in total. Natural vanilla extract represents less than 1% by volume, though it is more important in terms of value. Sales prices range from about USD 1,500 per kg for natural vanilla extract to USD 10-20 per kg for synthetic vanillin.
The primary market opportunity is in providing a competitively priced product, with good aroma properties, made from a natural and sustainable source. Evolva believes such properties will allow fermentation-derived vanillin to be used in a wide variety of food and other products. Evolva does not believe that such a product will significantly replace vanilla obtained from the orchid.
Important spicesVanillin is commonly known as vanilla powder, cloud Nepal with powder, vanilla extract, is extracted from the Rutaceae vanilla bean, is a kind of important spices, is one of synthetic fragrances yield the largest varieties, mixing chocolate, ice cream, chewing gum, pastry and tobacco essence of important raw materials. Naturally occurring in pods of vanilla planifolia, and clove oil, oakmoss oil, balsam of Peru, tolu balsam storax.
Vanillin has strong and unique vanilla bean aroma, aroma stability, under the high temperature, less volatile. It is vulnerable to light, and gradually oxidized in the air, easy to change color at encountering alkali or alkaline material. Aqueous solution reacts with ferric chloride to produce blue purple solution. Can be used for many fragrance formulas, but mainly used for edible essence. Especially widely used in the candy, chocolate, soft drinks, ice cream, wine, and in the smoke flavor.There is no restrictions imposed on the use of IFRA. But because of easy cause discoloration, we should pay attention to use in white fragrant product.
Vanillin is also an important foundation for edible spices, spices, almost all flavors, most used in food industry. Food flavors are widely used in bread, butter, cream and brandy etc. The addition amount of cakes, biscuits is 0.01 ~ 0.04%, candy is 0.02 ~ 0.08%, which is one of the most the baked food with spices, can be used for chocolate, biscuit, cake, ice cream and Boudin. Before use, it is dissolved in warm water, the effect is much better. The highest amount of baked food is 220mg/kg, chocolate is 970mg/kg. As fixative agent, coordination agent and modifier are widely used in cosmetics, also is the important flavoring agent for food and drink. it is used in medicine. L- DOPA (L-dopa), methyldopa. Also used for nickel, chrome metal plating brightener.

Physicochemical propertiesVanillin has strong and unique vanilla beans, naturally found in vanilla and clove oil, oil, oakmoss, balsam of Peru, and the rest of tolu balsam. Sulfite solution or red pulp softwood lignin sulfonate, under the alkaline conditions, reacted by high-pressure oxidation hydrolysis precipitation to get white to light yellow crystalline powder or acicular crystal. From petroleum ether precipitation can also generate tetragonal crystal. It has Aroma, Bitter sweet. In the air, it is gradually oxidized. In case of light, it generated decomposition. In case of alkali, it generated discoloration. The relative molecular mass is 152.15. The relative density is 1.056. melting point is different form tetragonal crystalline to another, tetragonal crystal is 81 to 83℃. Acicular crystal ranged from 77 to 79℃, the boiling point is 285℃ (in CO2 gas), 170℃ (2 x 103Pa), 162℃ (1.33 x 103Pa), 146 C (0.533 x 103Pa). It can generate sublimation without decomposition. The flash point is162 ℃. Slightly soluble in cold water, soluble in hot water, soluble in ethanol, ethyl ether, propylene Ketone, benzene, chloroform, carbon disulfide, glacial acetic acid, pyridine and volatile oil. Water and FeCl3 generate blue purple solution. For rats, by oral LD 50 1580mg/kg, mice is by percutaneous LD 50 1500mg/kg.
Industrial production method is that eugenol in the presence of potassium hydroxide, produce to ISO eugenol, then reacted with acetic anhydride formation of isoeugenol acetate, followed by oxidation and hydrolysis reaction to produce. It is an important raw material for mixing chocolate, ice cream, chewing gum the pastry and tobacco flavor. It can also be used as cosmetics fragrance coordination agent and a flavor enhancer. It is also the pharmaceutical raw materials of industry.
In recent years, it appeared a new fashion in the commodity of vanillin. Use oil of clove or basil oil provided out of eugenol as raw material, vanillin obtained by isomerization and oxidation, as it can be regarded as a natural equivalent quality, therefore it is called natural vanillin and into the spice market, its price is about 5 times that of the synthetic product.
Action and useFlavors: vanillin is edible flavouring agent, with vanilla bean aroma and strong desire for milk fragrance, is an important and indispensable raw material for food additives industry, widely used in all need to increase milk fragrance flavor flavoring in food, such as cake, cold drinks, chocolate, candy, biscuits, instant noodles, bread and tobacco, flavoring liquor, toothpaste, soap, cosmetics, perfume, ice cream, drinks and cosmetics play aroma and flavour. Also it can be used for soap, toothpaste, perfume, rubber, plastic, pharmaceutical products. It Accord with FCCIV standard.
Side EffectsGeneral Side Effects
Using of vanillin in large quantity(over 30g a time) could lead to headache, nausea, vomiting, difficulty breathing, and even kidney damage.Don’t get too frightened, vanillin isn’t one of the most toxic food additives you’ll find and in fact usually won’t trigger much more than a headache or allergic reaction in sensitive folks. Usually, switching from artificial vanilla extract to pure vanilla extract is all that is needed to avoid issues. Many connoisseurs of the vanilla bean claim vanillin to be an inferior product to pure vanilla extract anyway. If you’re making an attempt to eat quality food, you probably won’t encounter much vanillin anyway.

Special Groups Precaution
Special groups refer to newborns, children, pregnant and any other applicable vulnerable groups.
There is no evidence that Vanillin could have any negative effects on these vulnerable groups. It should be safe to use Vanillin in food for newborns and pregnant. However, we still recommend consumers to consult professionals before using large quantity of Vanillin for long period in food for newborns or pregnant.

GRAS Affirmation: Yes
Generally recognized as safe(GRAS) is a FDA designation that a specific substance or ingredient is generally considered safe by experts, and so is exempted from the usual Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) food additive tolerance requirements. Vanillin is considered safe by FDA according to existing data and granted GRAS status.
VanitropeVanitrope has a strong and enduring clove and vanilla aroma, the aroma intensity is from 16 to 25 times of vanillin. Vanitrope was early developed. in the twenties of the 20th century. Early synthetic route is that safrole oil as raw material, the alcohol solution of potassium hydroxide reacted hot pressing enable to open ring, and then used sodium ethyl sulfate to make the hydroxy ethylation, finally in the ethanol solution with sulfuric acid hydrolysis to obtain the vanitrope. But due to the lack purity of aroma of the product, so it is very little actual application.
In the fifties of the 20th century, it developed from eugenol preparation of vanitrope synthetic route (U. S. patent 2663741), only then can realize the industrial production.
Catechol flavor chemists,successfully developed by more cheap raw materials of pyrocatechol in the Soviet Union in 1960s.
First with allyl chloride to catechol mono alkylation, and the yield is 75%; followed by rearrangement reaction and yield is 35% ~ 38%; then by using ethyl sodium sulfate for single ethylation, yield is 82%. Finally with potassium hydroxide isomerization will get vanitrope, yield is 84%, after recrystallization of the crude product melting point 85.5 to 86℃.
The use of vanillin flavor quality standard reference
Vanitrope applied in candy, beverage, ice cream and other food flavoring formulations, the FEMA number is 2922. It also can be used in cosmetics and soap fragrance formula. It not only can used as a spice, but also can be used as a synergistic agent and antioxidant.
Former Soviet Union perfumers hold different views of vanitrope aroma properties. They added it to the chocolate and other food flavor. It is found that the goods are not vanillin aroma, so that it cannot in the flavor of food as a substitute for vanillin. But when used for flavoring test of scented soap, found that soap has strong clove and vanilla aroma like it. The differences with vanillin and isoeugenol, vanitrope to alkali, light, oxidation is very stable, soap like storage does not change color. Therefore vanitrope should be used in fragrance formulations, particularly appropriate for fantasy flavor.
Industrial production methods vanillinIndustrial production of vanillin has more than 100 years of history, people have studied the ways and methods of many synthetic preparations, but the application in a large-scale industrial production are mainly the following three methods.
A. lignin route

Air & Water ReactionsSlowly oxidizes on exposure to air. . Slightly water soluble.
Reactivity ProfileVanillin can react violently with Br2, HClO4, potassium-tert-butoxide, (tert-chloro-benzene + NaOH), (formic acid + Tl(NO3)3). . Vanillin is an aldehyde. Aldehydes are readily oxidized to give carboxylic acids. Flammable and/or toxic gases are generated by the combination of aldehydes with azo, diazo compounds, dithiocarbamates, nitrides, and strong reducing agents. Aldehydes can react with air to give first peroxo acids, and ultimately carboxylic acids. These autoxidation reactions are activated by light, catalyzed by salts of transition metals, and are autocatalytic (catalyzed by the products of the reaction).
Fire HazardFlash point data for Vanillin are not available, however Vanillin is probably combustible.
