Dimethyl succinate Usage And Synthesis

Description

Dimethyl succinate belong to the diester of methyl alcohol and succinic acid, which can be found in nuts. It is a biodegradable ester with low odor and low volatility and commonly serves as a flavoring agent that can be used in perfumery and personal are products, including skin-conditioning agents and emollient. It also has a variety of industrial usages such as functional fluids (open systems), intermediates, paint additives and coating additives, pigments, viscosity adjustors, etc. Besides, dimethyl succinate can be used in the production of pharmaceuticals as well as agrochemicals and for manufacturing additives, plastics and other organic compounds. In spite of its slightly water-soluble property, it can also act as a surfactant applied in water based systems.

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid

Chemical Properties

Dimethyl succinate has a pleasant, ethereal, winy odor and fruity, winy and burning flavor

Occurrence

Reported found in filbert nuts and starfruit.

Preparation

By direct esterification of the acid with the alcohol in benzene solution at the boil in the presence of concentrated H2SO4

Taste threshold values

Taste characteristics at 0.1%: sweet, fruity, green with a soapy, waxy nuance

General Description

Colorless liquid.

Air & Water Reactions

Water soluble.

Reactivity Profile

Dimethyl succinate reacts with acids to liberate heat along with methanol and succinic acid. May react with strong oxidizing acids to liberate enough heat to ignite the reaction products. Heat is also generated by the interaction with caustic solutions. Flammable hydrogen is generated with alkali metals and hydrides.

Health Hazard

May be harmful by inhalation, ingestion or skin absorption. May cause irritation.

Fire Hazard

Dimethyl succinate is combustible. Vapor forms explosive mixtures with air.
