Benzyl alcohol is produced naturally by many plants and is commonly found in fruits and teas. It is also
found in a variety of essential oils including jasmine, hyacinth, and ylang-ylang.It is also one of the chemical compounds found in castoreum. This compound is gathered from the
beaver plant food.
Benzyl alcohol is an aromatic alcohol with the formula C6H5CH2OH. The benzyl group is often abbreviated
“Bn” (not to be confused with “Bz” which is used for benzoyl), thus benzyl alcohol is denoted as BnOH.
Benzyl alcohol is a colorless liquid with a mild pleasant aromatic odor. It is a useful solvent due to its polarity, low toxicity, and low vapor pressure. Benzyl alcohol is partially soluble in water (4 g/100 mL) and completely miscible in alcohols and diethyl ether.
Benzyl alcohol has nearly the same refraction index of quartz and wool fibre. If a clear quartz object is
immersed in benzyl alcohol, it becomes almost invisible. This has been used as a method to
non-destructively recognize if an object is made of true quartz or not (see crystal skull). Similarly, white
wool immersed in benzyl alcohol also becomes alm
Benzyl alcohol is a good middle boiling point solvent,it is widely used for additive to steroid when making into solution.
The main applications:paint solvent; ink solvent; plexiglass solvent; photographic developing agent;
PVC stabilizer; medicine, synthetic resin solvent; ointment or liquid medicine; solvent for meat products tamp-pad ink and ball-point pen oil.
It is used for carpet degreaser; crater cleaning agent; silicone solvent stabilizer; benzyl ester or ether intermediate.
Benzyl alcohol is a kind of very useful perfume fixative. It is an indispensable spice when jasmine, tuberose or ylang is mixed, and used to compound soap and daily cosmetics.
Benzyl alcohol is used as a general solvent for inks, paints, lacquers, and epoxy resin coatings. It is also a precursor to a variety of esters, used in the soap, perfume, and flavor industries. It is also used as a photographic developer.
