Chemical Properties

BOURGEONAL is a colorless to pale yellow liquid with a powerful green, aquatic, aldehydic, lily of the valley odor. It is recommended for use in toiletries and alcoholic fragrances, but also for use in soaps and detergents. 3-[4-(1,1-Dimethylethyl)phenyl]propanal can be prepared from 4-tert-butylbenzaldehyde by aldol reaction with acetaldehyde and subsequent selective hydrogenation of the double bond of the resulting 4-tert-butylcinnamaldehyde or by reaction of tert-butylbenzene with acrolein diacetate in the presence of a Lewis catalyst and saponification of the resulting 3-[4-(1,1-dimethylethyl)phenyl]-1 (cipher)-propen-1-yl acetate.


A potent agonist at hOR17-4 (a human testicular olfactory receptor) and acts as a strong chemoattractant in sperm behavioral assays. The bourgeonal-hOR17-4 signaling pathway potentially governs chemi cal communication between sperm and egg and may be used to manipulate or block fertilization.
