Phenyl Ethyl Alcohol Production Cost Analysis 2020

Phenethyl alcohol is also known by the names, 2-phenylethanol, Ppenethyl alcohol, benzyl carbinol, β-hydroxyethylbenzene, and benzenethanol. While its boiling point is about 219 to 221 °C (426 to 430 °F; 492 to 494 K) its melting point is about −27 °C (−17 °F; 246 K). Phenethyl alcohol is an organic compound composed of a phenethyl group that is often attached to OH. In appearance, it is a colourless liquid, which is slightly miscible in water but soluble with most organic solvents. It is found in abundance in nature. It is also found in a variety of essential oils. It is known for its pleasant floral odour. 

Phenethyl alcohol is produced in industries via two routes. The most common is the Friedel-Crafts reaction between benzene and ethylene oxide in the presence of aluminium trichloride. Phenethyl alcohol is also present in extracts of rose, carnation, hyacinth, Aleppo pine, orange blossom, ylang-ylang, geranium, neroli, as well as champaca. It is also an autoantibiotic that is prepared by the fungus Candida albicans. It is hence a common ingredient in flavours as well as perfumery, primarily when the odour of rose is desired. It is also utilised as an additive in cigarettes. It is also utilised as a preservative in soaps due to its stability in necessary conditions.
