Benzyl Benzoate

1. Properties and Applications
1.1 Molecular formula, Molecular weight, Structural formula and  CAS No.
EC No. and Formal registration No.
Molecular formula: C14H12O2
Molecular weight: 212
Structural formula: 
CAS No.:120-51-4
EC No.: 204-402-9
Formal registration No.: 01-2119976371-33-0001
1.2 Properties
1.2.1 Appearance
In standard conditions, benzyl benzoate is a colorless or pale yellow viscous transparent liquid. In temperature conditions of 17 degrees centigrade or lower, it will be solidified into white solid. Benzyl benzoate of high-purity would send out slight fragrance.
1.2.2 Freezing Point
Freezing point: ≥17℃
In winter, because of being solid, the package of benzyl benzoate can be placed in hot air chamber (35-70 ℃) or warm water (40-90 ℃), it can be used after melted.
1.2.3 Boiling Point
Boiling point: 323℃
Due to its high boiling temperature and low volatility, it is a kind of flammable, but non-easily-flammable organic solvent.
1.2.4 Solubility
Benzyl benzoate is insoluble in water but soluble in organic solvents. Benzyl benzoate itself,a high-temperature solvent, is the only solvent of Musk. Benzyl benzoate has applications to pharmacy and perfume industry just because of its characters of low volatilization and relative stability.
1.2.5 Plasticity
Benzyl benzoate has good performance of plasticity.
For its good performance of plasticity, solvent, safety and environmental protection, benzyl benzoate has been widely used into synthesis of lead agent, leveling agent, repair agent, and so on.
1.3 Applications
1.3.1 Main Applications
Benzyl benzoate is mainly used in the area of textile auxiliary, fragrance and flavor, pharmacy, plasticizer and so on.
1.3.2 The Application Mechanism in Textile Auxiliaries and Comparison with Other
  Similar Products.
Benzyl benzoate can be used to lead agent, leveling agent and repair agent of textile auxiliaries.
Mechanism: With the development of the textile industry, the materials are of higher-grade. The higher-grade cloth is, the more compact fabric is. So in dyeing, there are more difficulties in coloring and uniformity Due to the good plasticity performance, benzyl benzoate makes the fiber swell and undraw so that the fiber will be dyed easily. At the same time, benzyl benzoate is a good solvent to dissolve and disperse dye evenly. Since its quite good dye migration performance, benzyl benzoate could be developed as leveling agents and lead agent.
Due to its comparatively great comprehensive performance, benzyl benzoate has wider and wider application in textile auxiliary. There are many other materials, which have similar properties with benzyl benzoate, such as methylnaphthalene, dimethylnaphthalene, methyl salicylate, and benzene ester. Comparison are as follows:
Product Evenly Dyeing Property Price Comprehensive Environmental Safety Property
(Di-)methylnaphthalene ordinary low poor
Benzene Ester ordinary medium poor
Methyl Salicylate excellent high poor
Benzyl Benzoate excellent medium fair
2. Storage and Packing
2. 1 Storage
Benzyl benzoate should be stored in a cool and well-ventilated warehouse. 
2. 2 Packing
Iron, PVC drum and as your specific requirements
Standard for net weight: 25kg/plastic drum, 225kg/plastic drum

3.2 Suggestions of Choosing Suitable Grade for Different Use
3.2.1 Textile Auxiliary
BP2000 grade of our products can meet the general demands. If you have special requirements for color and smell, such as colorless or no irritating smell, our products of perfumery grade will be the right choice.
3.2.2 Pharmacy and Perfumery
Perfumery grade of our products will be the right choice for pharmacy and perfumery.
4. The Position in the Counterparts
4.1 Production and Sales Volume
Capacity of production: 6,000 tons per year
Sales Volume: Sales amount has been increasing year by year since we entered industry of benzyl benzoate in 2005, and reached 5,200 tons in 2014, which made us in the front ranks all over the world. 
4.2 Sales Region
The sale of our benzyl benzoate remains leaps and bounds ahead in the domestic market—many well-known textile auxiliary enterprises are our regular customers, such as Dymatic Chemicals, Inc., Transfar Group; Our products are also sold to Europe, America, Japan, Russia ,South East Asia, Middle East and Taiwan ----- Huntsman and Dystar are two of our regular customers.
4.3 Concentration, Experts and to Be the Best Supporting role
For limited market capacity of benzyl benzoate, the powerful companies are reluctant to get involved in. Small as we are, we have solid technical forces. We research and develop every step from reaction, distillation to wastewater treatment.And we optimize the whole operational process, from technology to equipment, to achieve first-class quality and cost effective. Concentration, Experts and to be the best supporting role – We are improving our performance continuously and striving to be the best.
