Description

General description

Benzyl acetates are generally used as flavoring agents and preservatives. They find applications in foods and beverages, drugs, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, etc.

Application

Benzyl acetate has been used as a reference standard for the determination of the analyte in e-cigarette refill solutions as flavoring additives and in muskmelon and watermelon fruits as aromatic agents by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), and in scented consumer products as odor compounds by gas chromatography-olfactometry (GC-O).
