Since there are double bonds in the molecule, there are two structures, cis and
trans. Natural products such as Peru balsam, tolu balsam, benzoin cream, and Su He
balm contain benzyl cinnamate. Non-toxic, flammable, pure white or light yellow
crystal, similar to the aroma of Suhe balm, insoluble in water, ethylene glycol
and glycerin, soluble in organic solvents such as ethanol, mainly used as a spice.

Benzyl cinnamate is used as an ester synthetic perfume, mainly used as a deodorant
for oriental essence and artificial cologne, and also as a soap fragrance.Used as
a UV absorber. Mainly used in sunscreen and tanning cosmetics. The maximum
absorption wavelength for ultraviolet light is 310 nm. The amount added is usually
less than 5%.It is used in the flavoring formula, and is usually used to blend
fruity flavors such as apricot, cherry and pineapple.

The esterification method and the condensation method are mainly employed: the
esterification method is obtained by neutralizing sodium cinnamate as a raw
material and then esterifying with chlorotoluene. The condensation method is
obtained by condensation reaction using benzyl acetate and benzaldehyde as raw
materials.Natural matter extraction method: The natural substance extraction
method is obtained by extracting benzyl cinnamate present in Peru balsam, tolu
balsam and benzoin by extraction.Direct esterification of cinnamic acid and benzyl
alcohol: transesterification using benzyl alcohol and methyl cinnamate: method of
interaction between sodium cinnamate and benzyl chloride: Claisen condensation by
benzyl acetate and benzoic acid .
