Methyl hexanoate Usage And Synthesis
DescriptionMethyl hexanoate is the methyl ester form of hexanoate with fruity type odor and flavor. It is formed by the esterification between methanol and hexanoate. It can be found in many sources such as wine grapes, melon, raspberry, blackberry, plum, quince, apple brandy, wines, Bourbon vanilla, coffee, black tea, potato, tomato, cheeses, rye bread, meats and other foodstuffs. Its major application is used as cosmetic, flavor and fragrance agents.

DescriptionMethyl hexanoate has an ether-like odor reminiscent of pineapple. May be prepared by reacting methyl alcohol with hexanoic acid at 130 - 140°C in the presence of concentrated H2S04 and distilling the ester from the reaction mixture.

OccurrenceReported found in pineapple, apple, apricot, orange juice, black currants, guava, grapes, melon, papaya, pineapple, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry, potato, tomato, pepper, rye bread, cheeses, butter, milk, beef mutton, hop oil, beer, grape wine, cider, coffee, tea, honey, cloudberry, durian (Durio zibethinus), olive, passion fruit, plumcot, mushroom, starfruit, mango, wood apple, licorice, soursop, cashew apple, wort, cherimoya, kiwifruit, babaco fruit (Carica pentagona Heilborn), Bourbon vanilla, mountain papaya, oyster, custard apple, nectarine, naranjilla, lamb’s lettuce, loganberry, cape gooseberry, spineless monkey orange, Chinese quince and pawpaw.
UsesIntermediate for caproic acid detergents, emulsifiers, wetting agents, stabilizers, resins, lubricants, plasticizers, flavoring.
PreparationBy reacting methyl alcohol with hexanoic acid at 130 to 140°C in the presence of concentrated H2SO4 and distilling the ester from the reaction mixture
DefinitionChEBI: A fatty acid methyl ester derived from hexanoic (caproic acid).
Aroma threshold valuesDetection: 10 to 87 ppb
General DescriptionClear colorless liquid.
Air & Water ReactionsInsoluble in water.
Reactivity ProfileMethyl hexanoate 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. Methyl hexanoate reacts with strong oxidizing agents and strong bases.
Fire HazardMethyl hexanoate is combustible.
Purification MethodsPass it through alumina and distil it before use. [Beilstein 2 IV 921.]
