Butyl hexanoate has a characteristic pineapple-like odor.

Occurrence

Reported found in fresh apple, apple juice, apricot, banana and orange juice.

Preparation

By esterification of hexanoic acid with n-butyl alcohol in benzene solution in the presence of p-toluene sulfonic acid; it is also formed in the fermentation of carbohydrates yielding n-butyl alcohol and acetone.

Aroma threshold values

Detection: 700 ppb to 10 ppm

Taste threshold values

Taste characteristics at 10 ppm: fruity, pineapple, green, waxy, tutti-frutti with a slight fermented fruit note.

Safety Profile

Low toxicity by ingestion and skin contact. A skin irritant. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.
