Questions And AnswerBack Directory
[Edible spices]

Phenethyl alcohol is a kind of edible spices, and naturally exists in neroli, rose oil, geranium oil and other oils, because it has a soft, pleasant and persistent rose fragrance and is widely used in various kinds of flavors and cigarette flavor. It is dispensing rose scent, food additives, the main raw material for rose scent flavor, stable on alkali, which are widely used in soap fragrance, is essence blending all rose scent series of spices, because it does not dissolve in water, it is often used in the making up water, soap and orange flower, purple, etc. It is also used in the blending of flavor. Because the phenethyl alcohol has a good antibacterial efficiency, it can be used in the ophthalmic solution. At present there are main three synthesis methods as following:
1, by styrene via halogenation, saponification, hydrogenation, distillation.
2, and microorganism fermentation in yeast by bioconversion.
3, calcium carbide, benzene as raw material preparation of benzyl ethanol, reaction equations are as follows:
1)CaC2+2H2O=Ca(OH)2+C2H2
2)C6H6+C2H2=C6H6CHCH2(Styrene)
3)C6H6CHCH2+H2O=C6H6CH2CH2OH(Phenethyl alcohol)
