|Summary||The molecular formula of benzoic acid is C6H5COOH, carboxyl is directly connected with the carbon atom on the benzene ring of the simplest aromatic acid, is a hydrogen in benzene ring by the substitution of the carboxyl group (- COOH) compound formation. It is colorless, lamellar crystal, odorless. Melting point is 122.13℃, boiling point is 249℃. The relative density is 1.2659 (15 / 4 ℃). The rapid sublimation at 100 ℃, the steam has a strong irritant, can cause cough after inhalation. It is slightly soluble in water, soluble in ethanol, ether, chloroform, benzene, toluene, CS2, CCl4 and turpentine organic solvent. As the free acid, ester or its derivatives in the form of widespread in nature, for example, in the benzoin gum is existence in the form of free acid and benzyl ester; it is in the free form in some plant leaves and stem bark; and exists in form of methyl and benzyl ester in the essential oils; exists in form of the derivatives of hippuric acid in the horse urine. Benzoic acid is weak, and stronger than fatty acids. Their chemical properties are similar, can form salt, ester, amide anhydride, acyl halide, etc., are not easy to be oxidized. Benzene of benzoic acid occurred electrophilic substitution reaction, mainly by m-substituted. Benzoic acid is often used as drug or the use of preservative, anti fungal, bacterial, fungal growth, medicinal is painted on the skin, used to treat ringworm of the skin disease. It is used for synthetic fiber, resin, paint, rubber, tobacco industry. Initially benzoic acid is obtained by an interest gum distillation or alkaline hydrolysis and by hippurate hydrolysis. In industrial, benzoic acid is obtained in cobalt, manganese catalyst by air oxidation of toluene; or by phthalic anhydride hydrolysis decarboxylation of benzoic acid and its sodium salt can be used as latex, toothpaste, jam or other food antimicrobial agent, also can be used for dyeing and mordant.
|Discovery History||Benzoic acid was found in the 16th century. In 1556, Nostradamus first described carbonization effect of benzoin; After the Alexius Pedemontanus and Brian blessed decipher were discovered in 1560 and 1596. In 1875, the salkowski discovered the antifungal potency of benzoic acid, so benzoic acid is used for long term preservation cloudberry.|

|Effect||Benzoic acid and sodium benzoate are commonly used food preservative. In acidic conditions, it has inhibitory effect on yeast and mold. When pH value is 3 antibacterial strength, when pH was 6 for a lot of mould effect is very poor, so the inhibition the optimum pH value is 2.5-4.0. In the food industry with plastic barrels concentrated fruit and vegetable juice, the maximum usage shall not exceed 2.0g/kg; in the jam (not including canned), fruit juice (taste) drinks, soy sauce, vinegar in the maximum amount is 1.0g/kg; in Wine, candy, wine in the maximum amount of 0.8g/kg in the low salt; pickles, sauces, candied fruit, use the largest 0.5g/kg in carbonate; use the largest beverage 0.2g/kg. because of solubility of benzoic acid, when used will be stirring, or dissolved in a small amount of hot water or ethanol. The use of concentrated fruit juice in the soft drink used for benzoic acid easily volatile with steam, it is commonly used in the sodium salt. Benzoic acid in food industry is a common preservative in dairy products, but not allowed to be added. In general, benzoic acid is considered to be safe. But for some special populations, including infants, long-term intake of benzoic acid may lead to asthma, urticaria, metabolic acidosis and other adverse reactions. Paul deodorant benzoic acid is also used as a beverage. As the cream sweet perfume fragrance. Can also be used for chocolate, lemon, orange, sub berries, nuts, candied fruit and other edible flavor type. Tobacco flavor also commonly used. In addition of benzoic acid is also used as a pesticide, medicine, dye, mordant and plasticizer agent for the production of raw materials, polyamide resin and alkyd resin modifying agent and steel equipment anti rust agent.|
|The method of use of food additives||1.the antibacterial activity of benzoic acid molecule was higher than that of the ions, so When pH is less than 4, antibacterial activity is high, the minimum inhibitory concentration is 0.015%-0.1%. but in acidic solution in the solubility decreased, so do not rely solely on the improvement of the solution of acid to improve its antibacterial activity. Benzoic acid of optimum antibacterial is pH 2.5 ~ 4.|
2.Due to the low solubility of benzoic acid in water, so the actual is added just the right amount of sodium carbonate or sodium bicarbonate, with more than 90℃ dissolved in hot water, making it into benzoic acid sodium then added to the food. If you must use of benzoic acid, first with the amount of dissolved in ethanol before use.
3.because the solubility of benzoic acid in water is lower than sodium benzoate , so the use of sodium benzoate in acidic foods should pay attention to prevent the transformation of sodium benzoate into benzoic acid caused by precipitation and reduce the effect of its use.
4.1g benzoic acid is equivalent of 1.18g sodium benzoate and 1g sodium benzoate is equivalent to 0.847g benzoic acid.

|Methods of production||1.It is initially from gum benzoin carbonization or alkaline hydrolysis , also by hippurate hydrolysis. In industrial, production method of benzoic acid is three, including in liquid phase oxidation of toluene, benzyl chloride hydrolysis and phthalic anhydride off carboxyl method , and toluene liquid phase air oxidation method are the most common. Toluene and air were vent into a container of cobalt naphthenate catalyst reactor. In reaction temperature 140-160℃, operating pressure is 0.2-0.3MPa conditions, then reaction to benzoic acid. After steaming to unreacted toluene to crude benzol acid, again by vacuum distillation and recrystallization to obtain the finished product. With phthalic anhydride off carboxyl method and the resulting product is not easy to be refined, and the production cost is high, only used in small quantities of pharmaceutical products in the manufacturing process. Toluene chlorination products are not suitable for application in food. The benzoic acid for industrial use, food, medicine with different specifications. Food grade should conform to the GB1901-80, content above 99.5%, melting point is 121-123℃, and oxides, carbides, chlorinated compounds, the burning residue, heavy metal and arsenic content for the provisions were stipulated. Raw materials consumption quota: toluene 1140kg/t, cobalt naphthenate 4kg/t. in addition, the production method which use toluene to benzaldehyde can be by-product benzoic acid.|
2.Derived directly from toluene liquid-phase oxidation.
It is from the adjacent benzene two formic acid to lead oxide, zinc oxide as catalyst and decarboxylation.
It is by the chlorination of toluene into three chloro toluene, then lime and powder hydrolysis.
3.Benzoic acid, although by toluene chlorination and phthalic acid decarboxylation process, but industrial production methods which are widely used at home and abroad for toluene as the raw materials of the liquid phase catalytic air oxidation method.
Dissolved toluene (NAI acid cobalt, cobalt or cobalt acetate) catalyst and air were continuously pumped into oxidation tower (or kettle) and again 140-165℃ and 0.3-0.4MPa pressure oxidation generating benzoic acid. Tower tail gas condensation and activated carbon adsorption process for the recovery of toluene vent; tower reactor liquid pressure fore running recovering unreacted toluene, benzyl alcohol and benzaldehyde light components, vacuum distillation to benzoic acid; recovery of toluene returned to the oxidation tower, toluene one-way conversion rate can be controlled in more than 35%.
