Benzyl alcohol is an organic compound with the formula C6H5CH2OH. The benzyl group is often abbreviated "Bn", thus benzyl alcohol is denoted as BnOH. Benzyl alcohol is a colorless liquid with a mild pleasant aromatic odor. It is a useful solvent due to its polarity, low toxicity, and low vapor pressure. Benzyl alcohol is partially soluble in water (4 g/100 mL) and completely miscible in alcohols and diethyl ether.
Benzyl alcohol is produced naturally by many plants and is commonly found in fruits and teas. It is also found in a variety of essential oils including jasmine, hyacinth, and ylang-ylang.
Benzyl alcohol is used as a general solvent for inks, paints, lacquers, and epoxy resin coatings. Benzyl alcohol and benzyl alcohol blends have been identified as paint strippers that do not contain Hazardous Air Pollutants. It is also a precursor to a variety of esters, used in the soap, perfume, and flavor industries. It is often added to intravenous medication solutions as a preservative due to its bacteriostatic and antipruritic properties. It is also used as a photographic developer. The use of benzyl alcohol as a 5% solution has been approved by the U.S. FDA in the treatment of head lice in children older than 6 months and in adults.
Benzyl alcohol has nearly the same refraction index of quartz and wool fibre. If a clear quartz object is immersed in benzyl alcohol, it becomes almost invisible. This has been used as a method to non-destructively recognize if an object is made of true quartz or not (see crystal skull). Similarly, white wool immersed in benzyl alcohol also becomes almost invisible clearly revealing contaminants such as dark and medullated fibres and vegetable matter. Also used in cigarettes.
Benzyl alcohol, Technical grade, is used as a general solvent; in the formulation of inks and lacquers; as a raw material in the manufacture of its various esters, used in the soap, perfume, and flavor industries; and as an intermediate in the synthesis of polypeptides. It is also used extensively as a non-reactive compound where it reduces the viscosity and raises the flexibility of epoxy resin coatings.
The USP-NF/FCC and BP grades of benzyl alcohol are used in the pharmaceutical industry in emulsions and ointments, and in lotions for the relief of insect bites. In the cosmetics industry it is used as a preservative in conjunction with parabens and with methylisothiazolinone.
