General description

Hexyl acetate is an ester and is commonly used as a solvent for resins, polymers, fats, and oils. It can also be used as a flavoring agent in the food industry. It is produced by acid catalyzed liquid phase esterification of n-hexanol and acetic acid.

Application

Hexyl acetate was used to study the activity of diamondback moth sex pheromone and larval frass volatiles, as well as green leaf volatiles from cabbage, on the natural enemies of the pest.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Hexyl acetate has antimicrobial activity and can be used to improve the safety of minimally processed fruits. Hexyl acetate is a fruity smelling fluid used as flavoring agent or in perfumes. Hexyl acetate is a green leaf volatile from cabbage Brassica oleracea var. capitata L.
