Dec. 16, 2019

Cinnamic acid, also known as β-phenyl acrylic acid, 3-phenyl-2-acrylic acid. It is an organic acid isolated from cinnamon or benzoin. Phenylacrylic acid produced by deamination of phenylalanine in plants. Mainly used in flavors and fragrances, food additives, pharmaceutical industry, beauty, pesticides, organic synthesis and other aspects. The Cinnamon Alcohol Supplier will talk about the application of cinnamic acid for everyone.

1, flavor and fragrance

Can be used as fragrance mixture in soap, shampoo, washing powder, daily cosmetics. Cinnamic acid can be used to adjust apples and cherries.

It is usually used as a raw material for fragrance, which can make the aroma of the main spice more volatile, such as the application of Benzyl Cinnamate.

2, food additives

Cinnamic acid synthesizes L-phenylalanine by microbial enzyme method. Anti-mildew, antiseptic and sterilization using cinnamic acid can be applied to freshness and antisepsis in food, vegetables and fruits. Cinnamic Acid can be used in candied fruit, which can improve the taste and flavor, especially in food preservation and preservation, and has a pollution-free environmental protection preservative.

It is also a reagent for the determination of uranium and vanadium separation; it is also the main synthetic raw material of negative-type photosensitive resin. It mainly synthesizes laurate, polyvinyl alcohol cinnamate, polyvinyloxycinnamate and epoxy resin with pendant cinnamate. Used in plastics, it can be used as heat stabilizer for PVC, bactericidal, mildew and deodorant.
