Hexyl salicylate Usage And Synthesis
Colorless and transparent oil liquid
Hexyl Salicylate has been reported in carnation flower absolute . It is a colorless liquid with a green, floral, spicy odor, reminiscent of azaleas. It is used for blossom and herbal notes in perfumes, for example, in soaps, personal hygiene products, and detergents.
Has apparently not been reported to occur in nature.
By methyl salicylate exchange with n-hexanol using a sodium methoxylate catalyst.
Because of the widespread medicinal use of salicyclic acid and its derivatives, there is an extensive literature on the metabolism and excretion of these compounds. Most esters of salicyclic acid hydrolyse to salicylic acid in the body, but this occurs more readily with the lower esters, little of the amyl ester being split. A large proportion of salicylic acid is excreted unchanged by most species; salicyluric acid, gentisic acid, and salicylglucuronides are also known to be excreted (Williams. 1959). Salicylic acid has been found to be teratogenic to rats (Koshakji. 1972).
