Castor Oil C-7 Derivatives
Heptaldehyde is produced by the pyrolytic decomposition of ricinoleic acid with undecylenic acid as a major by-product in the presence of catalyst 0.5% benzoyl peroxide. Temperature and pressure have significant influence in the reaction over the variable yield of heptaldehyde.
It is application wise potent and readily used in perfumeries as a chemical intermediate. It is also exploited in rubber production, alcohol synthesis and is capable of acting as a solvent in plastic and plasticizer industries.
Annual demand for heptaldehyde stands at 1000 metric tonnes on a global scale but has a greater level of supply.
Heptanoic acid is derived from its corresponding aldehyde by oxidation process in the presence of oxygen in liquid phase. It is an oily liquid with an unpleasant, rancid odor.
Since it is an acid, it is useful for the preparation of esters namely ethyl heptanoate which in turn is applicable for the preparation of fragrances and synthetic flavours.
Heptanoic acid is also found to be an additive in cigarettes.
Its annual demand is estimated to be 1000 metric tonnes
globally but has a wider scope in perfumeries.
Heptanol is a reduced product of heptaldehyde synthesized by hrdrogenation in the presence of catalyst nickel under elevated temperatures.
It serves as a chemical intermediate in perfumes and flavor preparations and its utilities are also seen in toilet preparations and detergents.
It carries a global demand of only 1000 metric tonne but a product with excellent application capacity.
