Ethyl Hexanoate Usage And Synthesis


Description

Ethyl caproate (also ethyl hexanoate) is naturally found in the fruits of Ananas sativus. It can be synthesized by the direct esterification of caproic acid with ethyl alcohol. It has strong, sweet-ethereal like pineapple odor, with nuances of banana and strawberry.
Ethyl caproate is approved by the FDA for food use (as a flavoring agent in desserts and beverages) without hazard to public health. Ethyl Caproate is used to synthesize novel EP2/EP4 dual agonist of γ-lactam prostaglandin E1 analogs. It is also used as a chemical reagent in the synthesis of PPARα antagonists in the treatment of metabolic diseases.

Chemical Properties

CLEAR COLOURLESS LIQUID

Chemical Properties

Ethyl Hexanoate is a colorless liquid with a strong fruity odor, reminiscent of pineapples. It occurs in many fruits and is used in small amounts for floral, fruity notes in perfume compositions and in larger quantities in fruit flavors.

Chemical Properties

Ethyl hexanoate has a powerful, fruity odor with a pineapple–banana note. It has been also reported to have a winy odor.

Uses

manufacture of artificial fruit flavors.

Definition

ChEBI: A fatty acid ethyl ester obtained by the formal condensation of hexanoic acid with ethanol.

Preparation

By esterification of caproic acid with ethyl alcohol in the presence of concentrated H2SO4 or HCl

Aroma threshold values

Detection: 0.3 to 5 ppb

Taste threshold values

Taste characteristics at 10 ppm: fruity and waxy with a tropical nuance.

Safety Profile

A skin irritant. Flammable liquid when exposed to heat or flame; can react with oxidzing materials. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. To fight fire, use CO2, foam, dry chemical. See also ESTERS.

Carcinogenicity

Not listed by ACGIH, California Proposition 65, IARC, NTP, or OSHA.
