Description

General description

Hexyl acetate is produced by acid catalyzed liquid phase esterification of n-hexanol and acetic acid.

Application

Hexyl acetate was used to study the activity of diamondback moth sex pheromone and larval frass volatiles, as well as green leaf volatiles from cabbage, on the natural enemies of the pest.

Packaging

1 L in glass bottle

25, 500 mL in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Hexyl acetate has antimicrobial activity and can be used to improve the safety of minimally processed fruits. Hexyl acetate is a fruity smelling fluid used as flavoring agent or in perfumes. Hexyl acetate is a green leaf volatile from cabbage Brassica oleracea var. capitata L.
