Preparation and utilization of perillyl acetate

Preparation and utilization of perillyl acetate Perillyl acetate is a fragrance compound that was prepared by the reaction of β-pinenoxide with acetic anhydride and using acetic acid as an acid catalyst. Several selected catalysts were tested (homogenous: phosphoric acid, boric acid, acetic acid, and citric acid; heterogeneous: zeolite USY, SSA, and montmorillonite K-10) and the reaction conditions optimized for this reaction. The yield 78.7 % of perillyl acetate was obtained. Mayol (4-isopropylcyclohexylmethanol), a valuable fragrance compound, was further obtained by a two-step synthesis from perillyl acetate. Firstly, perillyl acetate was saponified to perillyl alcohol. The yield of alcohol was 94.4 %. The last step of the entire preparation was the hydrogenation of perillyl alcohol to Mayol. The yield of the desired product of this reaction was 94.6 %. Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals
