Diamond Hazard Value Description
Flammability   1 Materials that require considerable preheating, under all ambient temperature conditions, before ignition and combustion can occur. Includes some finely divided suspended solids that do not require heating before ignition can occur. Flash point at or above 93.3 °C (200 °F). (e.g. mineral oil, ammonia)
Instability   0 Normally stable, even under fire exposure conditions, and is not reactive with water (e.g. helium,N2)

Benzyl acetate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties


Chemical Properties

Benzyl acetate is a colorless liquid with a fruity odor. On burning and decomposition, it produces irritating fumes. Benzyl acetate reacts with strong oxidants causing fi re and explosion hazard

Chemical Properties

is the main component of jasmine absolute and gardenia oils. It occurs as a minor component in a large number of other essential oils and extracts. It is a colorless liquid with a strong, fruity, jasmine odor. Benzyl acetate is prepared by esterification of benzyl alcohol with acetic anhydride (e.g., with sodium acetate as a catalyst) or by reaction of benzyl chloride with sodium acetate. In terms of volume, benzyl acetate is one of the most important fragrance and flavor chemicals.


In perfumery, solvent for cellulose acetate and nitrate.


ChEBI: The acetate ester of benzyl alcohol.

General Description

Colorless liquid with an odor of pears.

Air & Water Reactions

Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Benzyl acetate is an ester. Esters react with acids to liberate heat along with alcohols and acids. Strong oxidizing acids may cause a vigorous reaction that is sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products. Heat is also generated by the interaction of esters with caustic solutions. Flammable hydrogen is generated by mixing esters with alkali metals and hydrides. Benzyl acetate is incompatible with strong oxidizing agents. Benzyl acetate is also incompatible with acids, bases and reducing agents.


A poison by inhalation. Moderately toxic by ingestion. Combustible. Upper respiratory tract irritant. Questionable carcinogen.

Health Hazard

Exposures to benzyl acetate cause adverse health effects. The symptoms of toxicity and poisoning include irritation to the skin, eyes, burning sensation, confusion, dizziness, drowsiness, labored breathing, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Benzyl acetate also causes adverse health effects to the respiratory tract and the CNS system with neurological effects.

Health Hazard

Harmful if inhaled. May be harmful if swallowed or absorbed through the skin. Vapor or mist is irritating to the eyes, mucous membrane and upper respiratory tract.

Fire Hazard

Benzyl acetate is combustible.


Benzyl acetate should be kept stored in a cool, dry place with the container closed when not in use.

Purification Methods

Purify the acetate by fractional distillation, preferably in a good vacuum. Values of n25 of 1.5232-1.5242 are too high and should be nearer to 1.4994. [Merker & Scott J Org Chem 26 5180 1961, Beilstein 6 IV 2262.]


Exposures to benzyl acetate far above the OEL may result in unconsciousness. After handling and using benzyl acetate, workers should wash thoroughly and remove contaminated clothing, washing it before reuse. Workers should avoid any kind of contact of benzyl acetate with the eyes, skin, ingestion, and inhalation. Workers should wear safety glasses and chemical goggles to avoid splashing of the chemical substance during work, and wear appropriate protective gloves and clothing to prevent skin exposure
