What is 2-Phenylethanol?
Phenethyl alcohol or 2-phenylethanol is a primary alcohol with the formula C6H5CH2CH2OH. This alcohol is colorless and is common in nature. It can be found in a variety of essential oils, including oily essences of rose, clove, hyacinth, Aleppo pine, orange blossom, ylang ylang, pelargonium, bergamot flower, and michelia.
Phenethyl alcohol is a colorless liquid with a scent of rose petals and honey and causes a slight burning sensation when tasted. The substance is sensitive to light and decomposes on direct exposure to air. It is slightly soluble in water (2ml/100mL H2O), more soluble in ethanol and ether.
What is 2-Phenylethanol used for?
Since phenethyl alcohol is present in most natural oils of flowers and fruits, and also for its aroma, it is an important raw material in the production of perfumes with rose aromas or with other floral combinations and in the formation of artificial flavors. Because it is stable when mixed with bases, it is ideal for adding fragrances and as a preservative in soaps, shampoos and conditioners. The esters with a lower concentration of fatty acids and alkyl ether are also considered valuable perfumes and flavors. It is also used as an additive in tobacco. It also has its usefulness as a synthetic source of organic compounds. Phenethyl alcohol also has antibacterial properties.
