Musk ketone Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

White to light yellow crystal powde

Chemical Properties

It forms yellowish crystals with a sweet, very persistent, slightly animal musk odor.Musk ketone is prepared by Friedel–Crafts acetylation of 1,3-dimethyl-5-tert-butylbenzene and nitration of the resulting 2,6- dimethyl-4-tert-butylacetophenone with nitric acid.
Musk ketone is widely used as a fixative in blossom and fantasy compositions.

General Description

Light yellow crystalline solid. Insoluble in water.

Air & Water Reactions

Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

A nitrated ketone. Ketones are reactive with many acids and bases liberating heat and flammable gases (e.g., H2). The amount of heat may be sufficient to start a fire in the unreacted portion of the ketone. Ketones react with reducing agents such as hydrides, alkali metals, and nitrides to produce flammable gas (H2) and heat. Ketones are incompatible with isocyanates, aldehydes, cyanides, peroxides, and anhydrides. They react violently with aldehydes, HNO3, HNO3 + H2O2, and HClO4.

Fire Hazard

Flash point data is not available for Musk ketone, however, Musk ketone is probably combustible.

Purification Methods

Purify the ketone by recrystallisation from MeOH. It has a strong odour of musk and is used in perfumery. [Fuson et al. J Org Chem 12 587 1947, Beilstein 7 IV 808.]
