(CAS No. 7143-01-3) is an organic compound from the family of aliphatic hydrocarbons known as dimethyl Benzyl Alcohol. It is also known as d-BAA or methylheptyl alcohol. This colorless liquid with a mild odor is naturally found in essential oils such as spearmint, eucalyptol and menthone. It is also a useful industrial solvent and in the manufacture of several chemical compounds.
The CAS Registry number is a unique numerical identifier assigned by the Chemical Abstracts Service to every chemical substance described in the open scientific literature. The number is used to distinguish substances and is also known as the CAS Number. The CAS number of Dimethyl Benzyl Alcohol is 7143-01-3.
Its chemical name is Dimethylbenzyl Alcohol, and its molecular formula is C8H14O. In addition to its use as a solvent, it is also used in the processing of flavor extracts, seasonings, colorants, and food preservatives.
Dimethyl Benzyl Alcohol is a practical non-toxic, non-irritant and non-carcinogenic solubility enhancer, and does not adversely influence the flavor or odor of substances which it is used with. In cosmetics, it is used for solubility and absorption purposes, primarily in texture enhancers.
It is also used in the production of varnishes, lacquers, coatings, and other synthetic resins, and in the manufacture of plastics, inks and paint, as well as pharmaceuticals and fragrances. It is a popular solvent in the production of various synthetic leathers and adhesive films.
Furthermore, it is environmentally friendly, not persistent in soils, and has low bioaccumulation potential. It is used in households as a solvent for organic soaps, and in the manufacture of various consumer products such as detergents and cleaning products typically found in department and grocery stores.
As it is naturally derived, and is produced from renewable sources, Dimethyl Benzyl Alcohol is an environmentally friendly choice. Its low toxicity makes it a safe and economical choice for a variety of industrial applications.
