About Benzyl Benzoate

Benzyl benzoate is produced industrially by the reaction of sodium benzoate with benzyl alcohol in the presence of a base, or by transesterification of methyl benzoate and benzyl alcohol. It is the ester of benzyl alcohol and benzoic acid. It forms either a viscous liquid or solid flakes and has a weak, sweet-balsamic odor.

Benzyl benzoate is used as a repellent for chiggers, ticks, and mosquitoes. Benzyl benzoate is one of the older preparations used to treat scabies. It is also used as a dye carrier, solvent for cellulose derivatives, plasticizer, and fixative in the perfume industry.
