Chemical Properties

colourless liquid


Found among the constituents of several essential oils and aromas, notably apple, strawberry, tea, violet , Java citronella. Bourbon geranium, lavender, lavandin, spike, Litsea zeylanica; also identified in bitter orange . Preparation: By reduction of ethyl caproate with sodium alcoholate or by any other suitable means.


(+/-)-2-Hexanol is s an important raw material and intermediate used in Organic Synthesis, Pharmaceuticals, Agrochemicals and Dyestuff field. It is used as perfuming agent.

Toxicity evaluation

The acute oral LD50 in mice was reported as 4 g/kg and in rats as 4.87 g/kg and 4.59 g/kg . The acute dermal LD50 in rabbits was reported as 3.1 ml/kg and as > 5 g/kg . The maximum period of survival of rats inhaling the saturated vapours of hexanol was reported as 8 hr . Gerarde & Ahlstrom found that aspiration of 0-2 ml alcohol C-6 caused respiratory arrest and instant death. Scala & Burtis studied the acute toxicity of commercial grade hexanol by several routes of administration in various species. The acute oral LD50 in rats was 3.67 g/kg and the acute dermal LD50 in rabbits was >2.6 g/kg. Dermal application resulted in signs of CNS toxicity. Inhalation exposure of mice, rats and guineapigs to atmospheres nearly saturated with the hexanol preparation for 6 hr elicited a questionable effect on CNS activity, moderate (but reversible) local irritation mainly involving the mucous membranes and slight lung congestion.

General Description

2-Hexanol is one of the constituent of Porella arboris-vitae extracts which has been determined by solid phase microextraction, gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (SPME GC-MS).


n-Hexanol is metabolized by direct conjugation with glucuronic acid and by oxidation to the carboxylic acid and eventually to CO2. In the rabbit, direct conjugation is a minor pathway and oxidation the major pathway
