General description

ω-6-Hexadecenlactone is a macrocyclic lactone generally used as a fragrance ingredient due to its musk-like odor. It occurs naturally in ambrette seeds (Abelmoschus moschatus).

Application


  • RIFM fragrance ingredient safety assessment, ψ-6-hexadecenlactone, CAS Registry Number 7779-50-2.: This study conducted a comprehensive safety assessment of ψ-6-hexadecenlactone as a fragrance ingredient. The research concluded that this compound is safe for use in fragrance products under the conditions evaluated (Api et al., 2024).

  • Simple magnesium alkoxides: synthesis, molecular structure, and catalytic behaviour in the ring-opening polymerization of lactide and macrolactones and in the copolymerization of maleic anhydride and propylene oxide.: This study explored the synthesis and catalytic behavior of magnesium alkoxides, including their efficacy in ring-opening polymerization of macrolactones like ψ-6-hexadecenlactone. The findings highlight their potential in producing biodegradable polymers (Wannipurage et al., 2023).

  • One-Pot Terpolymerization of Macrolactones with Limonene Oxide and Phtalic Anhydride to Produce di-Block Semi-Aromatic Polyesters.: This research demonstrated a novel method for the terpolymerization of macrolactones, including ψ-6-hexadecenlactone, to create innovative semi-aromatic polyesters with potential applications in advanced material science (D′Auria et al., 2022).

  • Fragrance material review on ψ-6-hexadecenlactone.: This review summarized the existing data on ψ-6-hexadecenlactone, focusing on its use in fragrance products and providing a detailed analysis of its safety and efficacy as a fragrance ingredient (McGinty et al., 2011).
