Synthesis of benzyl benzoate

Preparation of benzyl benzoate

Preparation of benzyl benzoate

Preparation of benzyl benzoate

A solution of 0.75 g of sodium in 18 g of benzyl alcohol (previously dried over potassium hydroxide and redistilled) is heated on a water bath using a calcium chloride tube on the flask, and added to 75 g of benzaldehyde (previously dried over calcium chloride and distilled in a current of carbon dioxide). The whole is heated on a water bath for 20 hours, and acidified with 5 ml of glacial acetic acid. Water is added, and the oil which separates dried over calcium chloride and distilled in a high-temperature distilling flask. Some unchanged benzaldehyde comes over; the fraction 320-326° C is retained. Yield 80%, colourless crystals; insoluble in water; m.p. 20° C; b.p. 323° C.
