General description

Hexyl salicylate belongs to the class of flavor & fragrance standards, for use in food, beverage and cosmetic industry. These standards are widely used to add taste and/or smell to products without aroma, to mask unpleasant odors and to maintain stability of original flavor.

Application

Hexyl salicylate may be used as an internal standard for the determination of allergenic ester, benzyl salicylate in propolis specimens using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC?MS), high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and ultraviolet-visible (UV?Vis) spectrophotometry. It may also be used as a standard fragrance material for the quantification of the analyte in wastewater treatment plants using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC?MS).
