General description

Benzyl alcohol is an aromatic hydrocarbon, commonly employed as solvents and intermediates in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and flavor and fragrance products. Additionally, it is used in the production of paints, inks, glues, and hardening products.

Application

Benzyl alcohol used in the:
  • Etherification of glycerol.
  • Preparation of benzaldehyde by solvent free oxidation using supported undecamolybdophosphate catalyst.
  • Synthesis of N-(phenylmethylene)benzeneamine by the reaction with nitrobenzene in presence of rhodium-catalyst.
