Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde Price Trend

Typically, hexyl cinnamic aldehyde is synthesised via the crossed-aldol condensation of octanal and benzaldehyde. Benzaldehyde levels in North America have been progressively increasing throughout Q4. Prices were impacted in the early months of the year by a lack of upstream toluene supply due to lower import volumes, lower inventory levels, and reduced refinery operating rates. In the United States, benzaldehyde prices have been sustained by rising crude oil prices. As a result, hexyl cinnamic aldehyde prices increased as well.
