Uses1. Allyl hexanoate is Used for the preparation of pineapple and other fruit flavors.
2. China provides that allyl hexanoate is the spices temporally allowed to use, which is commonly used in the modulation of food spices and tobacco spices with the flavor of strawberry, apricot, peach, sweet orange, pineapple, apple and other fruit. The use amount of allyl hexanoate is according to the normal production needs, such as 210 mg/kg in chewing gum, 32mg/kg in confectionery, 25 mg/kg in baked goods and 11 mg/kg in cold drinks.
3. GB 2760--1996 provides that allyl hexanoate is the food spices temporally allowed to use, which is mainly used in the preparation of pineapple, apple and other fruit spices.

5. Widely used in the preparation of food flavors, spices, tobacco flavors and pineapple and other fruit flavors, and also used as an organic synthesis of intermediates.
Production methodProduction method 1
Hexanoic acid and allyl alcohol directly perform esterification in catalysis of sulfuric acid, and then the prepared esters are neutralized, washed and distillated to obtain the finished products.
Production method 2
(1) solid acid catalytic method. Add 23.2 g (0.4 mol) of propenol, 23.2 g (0.2 mol) of hexanoic acid, 0.1 g of hydroquinone, 3.0 g of solid super TiO2/SO4-2 and 30 mL of toluene into a 150 mL flask. Heat for reflux for 1.5h and the generated water were taken out by the azeotropic agent toluene. The reaction solution was cooled and filtered, and the solid acid could be repeatedly used after being dried. Add 0.1g of cuprous chloride in the filtrate, and then distillate them to collect the fraction of 186-188 ° C. The obtained finished products was 27.1g with a yield of 86.9%, and the refractive index n20d was 1.4241.
(2) sulfuric acid catalytic method. Firstly, hexanoic acid and allyl alcohol performed esterification in catalysis of sulfuric acid. After the end of the reaction, the above esters were washed with water and then were neutralized with 15% Na2CO3 solution and washed with water to neutral. Add anhydrous sodium carbonate or anhydrous calcium chloride for dehydration. Finally, the finished products were obtained by further filtration and vacuum distillation.
Production method 3
Secondary octanol were oxidized by nitric acid to generate various organic acids based on hexanoic acid and heptanoic acid. The above acids mixture were then fractionated to obtain n-caproic acid, which then performed esterification with allyl alcohol in the presence of concentrated sulfuric acid. The reaction products were then dehydrated with benzene, washed and fractionated to obtain the finished allyl hexanoate.

Chemical PropertiesCLEAR COLOURLESS LIQUID
Chemical Properties2-Propenyl Hexanoate has been shown to occur in pineapple. It has a typical pineapple odor and is used in, for example, pineapple flavors.
Chemical PropertiesA colorless liquid with fruity sweet, pineapple-like taste and fruit-like aroma (pineapple)
OccurrenceReported found in baked potato, mushroom and pineapple.
UsesAllyl Hexanoate is a liquid flavoring agent with a strong pineapple odor and pale yellow color. it is practically insoluble in propylene glycol and miscible with alcohol, most fixed oils, and mineral oil. it is obtained by chemical synthesis. it can be used alone or in com- bination with other flavoring substances or adjuvants. it is also termed allyl caproate.
PreparationBy esterification of n-caproic acid with allyl alcohol in the presence of concentrated H2SO4 or of naphthalene-β-sulfonic acid in benzene under a nitrogen blanket
Taste threshold valuesTaste characteristics at 10 ppm: sweet, fresh, juicy, pineapple and fruity
Safety ProfilePoison by ingestion and skin contact. Mutation data reported. An irritant to human skin. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. See also ALLYL COMPOUNDS and ESTERS
