Clear colorless liquid
Benzaldehyde dimethyl acetal has a sweet, floral note; also reminiscent of almond
Reported found in rhubarb and potato.
Benzaldehyde dimethyl acetal used as an effective reagent for the construction of selenocarbonyl compounds.
Benzaldehyde dimethyl acetal is suitable for use in the synthesis of 4,6-dihydroxy sugar, required for the total synthesis of Porphyromonas gingivalis 381 derived lipid A. It may be used in the preparation of 1-O-methyl-2,3-di-O-galloyl-β-D-glucose.
Benzaldehyde dimethyl acetal may be used as an analytical reference standard for the quantification of the analyte in fresh and canned fish and Cinnamomum zeylanicum using gas-chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS).
From benzaldehyde and methanol in the presence of calcium chloride and HCl; from benzaldehyde and tetramethylorthosilicate in the presence of anhydrous HCl in methanol
A mixture of ethylenediamine (1.2 g, 20 mmol), Ph3SbO (1.0 mmol), and P4S10 (2.0 mmol) was autoclaved under a pressure of CO2 (4.9 MPa). Imidazolidinone was isolated by column chromatography (silica gel; eluent: ethyl acetate/hexane, 1:1, v/v); yield 1.5 g (85%).
Taste threshold values
Taste characteristics at 25 ppm: green, nutty, brown and sweet
The abstraction of α-hydrogen atoms from benzaldehyde dimethyl acetal by active bromine at 80°C has been investigated.
Moderately toxic by
ingestion. A skin irritant. When heated to
decomposition it emits acrid smoke and
