General description

Benzyl alcohol belongs to the aromatic alcohol group of compounds widely utilized in cosmetics and preservatives. It is also used as a solvent and viscosity-reducing agent.

Application

Benzyl alcohol may be used as an analytical standard for the determination of benzyl alcohol in:
  • Wine samples by dichloromethane microextraction followed by gas chromatography-flame ionization detection (GC-FID).
  • Uncased and cased tobaccos by stream distillation continuous extraction (SDE) followed by capillary GC or GC coupled with mass spectroscopy (MS).
  • Dairy products by solid phase microextraction (SPME) followed by GC-MS.
  • Scented products by reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) combined with diode array detector (DAD).
