Production Methods

1. Benzyl alcohol is naturally occurring in orange blossom, ylang ylang, jasmine, gardenia, acacia, lilac, hyacinth, industrial benzyl chloride or benzaldehyde as raw materials. In 12% of the soda solution by adding benzyl chloride, heated to 93 ° C stirring reaction 5h, and then heated to 101 ~ 103 ° C to continue the reaction 10h. After the reaction, cooling to room temperature, adding salt to saturation, standing stratification, take the upper layer of crude oil distillation pressure, and refined products. The yield was 70% ~ 72%. In the presence of sodium hydroxide formaldehyde and benzaldehyde, the disproportionation reaction of benzyl alcohol. 2 to benzyl chloride as raw material, in the base of the catalytic hydrolysis derived hydrolysis. 3. Mix benzyl chloride, sodium carbonate and water in a certain proportion, stir quickly, emulsify the oil layer, raise the temperature to 90 ° C while stirring. When the generated carbon dioxide gas no longer escapes, continue heating to 101 ~ 103 ° C to complete the hydrolysis reaction: cooling after the end of the reaction, standing layered. Take the oil layer washed several times, into the water layer, and then atmospheric distillation, the first steamed water, benzyl chloride and other low boiling, as the initial fraction, and then collected 203 ~ 206 ℃ as the main distillate, is finished. BU, OR, 18; FC, BU, OR, 40; 5. Method: In a reaction flask equipped with a stirrer, a reflux condenser and a thermometer, 250 mL of water, 56 g of sodium carbonate, (2) (63.3 g, 0.5 mol) was added thereto, followed by vigorous stirring to emulsify benzyl chloride. Was added to the micro boil (about 95 & lt; 0 & gt; C). Carbon dioxide is produced in the reaction. Stop the escape of carbon dioxide bubbles that the reaction is completed, and then stirring reaction 0.5h. Cooling, separation of the organic layer, washed with water, crude benzyl alcohol. Fractionation, collecting 204 ~ 205 ° C distillate, in benzyl alcohol ① (1) in a yield of 74%.
