Application of Cinnamaldehyde

Mar. 09, 2020

Today Cinnamic Aldehyde Supplier introduces the application of cinnamaldehyde.

First, application of cinnamaldehyde in chemical industry

1. Organic chemical synthesis. Used to synthesize α-brominated cinnamaldehyde, cinnamic acid, cinnamyl alcohol, cinnamic nitrile and other products.

2. In industry, it can also be made into chromogenic agent and experimental reagent.

3. Insecticides, mosquito repellents, refrigerator deodorants, preservatives, etc. It has a strong killing effect on Aedes larvae that spread yellow fever, and it will become a new type of insecticide. Cinnamaldehyde is not only safe and environmentally friendly, but also has a fragrant smell. The antimicrobial agent containing cinnamaldehyde can repel insects. Can be directly used in drainage pipes (sewer) or car special flavors, air fresheners, oxygen generators, refrigerator deodorants, preservatives, etc.

4. Cinnamaldehyde can also be used as a bactericidal algicide and acid corrosion inhibitor in oil extraction. It can replace the traditional antiseptic fungicides such as glutaraldehyde, which can significantly increase oil production, improve oil quality, and reduce extraction costs. It has opened an unprecedentedly broad space for the application of cinnamaldehyde.

5. Because the application of cinnamaldehyde is not affected by pH like sodium benzoate, it has strong sterilization and disinfection functions for acidic or alkaline substances, and can also be widely used for antiseptic and mildew preservation.



Second, Application in flavor and fragrance

Cinnamaldehyde, as a hydroxy acid-based fragrance compound, has a good fragrance holding effect. It is used as a Cinnamon Spice in the fragrance, making the main fragrance more fragrant. Because it has a higher boiling point than other organic compounds with similar molecular structures, it is often used as a fixing agent. Commonly used in soap flavors, to modulate the flavors of gardenia, frangipani, lily of the valley, roses, etc. In food spices, it can be used in apple, cherry, and fruit flavors. Because cinnamaldehyde can not only modulate the flavors of various tastes, but also play a dual role in sterilizing and deodorizing the oral cavity. Commonly used in oral care products such as toothpaste, chewing gum and breath freshener.

Third, Application of cinnamaldehyde in food industry in food industry

Commonly used in edible spices, fresh-keeping, antiseptic and antifungal agents (paper), but also a good seasoning (feeding) oil, used to improve the taste and flavor. Such as: instant noodles, chewing gum, betel nuts, and other baked goods such as bread, cakes, and pastries.

Now the United States and Japan have researched and developed the application of cinnamaldehyde in food additives, mainly using its sterilization, disinfection and antiseptic functions. Cinnamaldehyde, as a food anti-mold agent, is non-toxic or low-toxic to the human body, and can have a strong inhibitory effect on the reproduction of microorganisms. Soluble in ethanol, ether, chloroform, oil, etc. It has a bacteriostatic effect. At a concentration of 2.5 × 10-4, it has a strong bacteriostatic effect on Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus niger, Penicillium citrifolium, Fusarium beadium, Alternaria, Geotrichum, and yeast.

Cinnamaldehyde has a good effect of inhibiting mold. Inhibit mold growth, strong antibacterial effect. Can effectively kill bacteria, E. coli. Cinnamaldehyde is an antifungal active substance. Foreign researchers have conducted research on the antifungal effect of cinnamaldehyde on 22 conditioned pathogenic fungi. The results showed that cinnamaldehyde had antibacterial effects on the tested bacteria. In the study of anti-Aspergillus flavus and ultrastructure of cinnamaldehyde, cinnamaldehyde has obvious anti-Aspergillus flavus effect.
