An overview on synthetic methods of benzyl acetate

Lu Hongjie, Linda Zhang

Abstract


Synthetic methods of benzyl acetate using different catalysts such as strong acid cation exchange resins, inorganic salts (the weight ratio of FeCl3 to carbon (46 %)  and Fe2(SO4)3), inorganic acids (H2SO4)  heteropoly compounds ((NH4)6[MnMo9O32]∙8H2O), heteropolyacids (phosphotungstic acid), solid superacids (S2O82- - Fe2O3 - ZnO, S2O82- - Fe2O3 - CoO, S2O82- - ZrO2 - Al2O3, SO42- - Al2O3, SO42- - ZrO2 - Nd2O3 and SO42-- MoO3 - TiO2), organic salts (tris(trimethylsilylmethylene)tin chloride) and ionic liquids (N-methylpyrrolidone hydrosulfate and 1-methyl-3-(3-sulfopropyl)imidazolium tungstophosphate) have been reviewed. The above mentioned catalysts improved the yield of benzyl acetate. These methods have the advantage of simple process and low investment costs.((NH4)6[MnMo9O32]∙8H2O), heteropolyacids (PW12/C), solid superacids (S2O82- - Fe2O3 - ZnO, S2O82- - Fe2O3 - CoO, S2O82- - ZrO2 - Al2O3, SO42- - Al2O3, SO42- - ZrO2 - Nd2O3 and SO42-- MoO3 - TiO2), organic salts ((Ce3SiCH2)3SnCl) and ionic liquids ([Hmnp]HSO4 and [MMPS]3PW12O40) have been reviewed in the present paper. Yields of benzyl acetate are improved by the addition of above catalysts. These methods are having the advantages of simple process and low investment costs.
