Flavors and Fragrances Applications
This 100% renewable, castor-based heptanol is used as an intermediate in the synthesis of aromatic chemicals like:
γ-Decalactone (3-decalactone) with a fruity peachy character
Esters from C1 to C8 acids with green, floral or fruity notes
Oleris® n-Heptanol is a chemical intermediate used in the synthesis of cosmetic ingredients with a vegetable origin, such as emollients, and surfactants
INCI name: heptanol
Heptanol is an alcohol with a seven carbon chain, a clear colorless liquid that is very slightly soluble in water, but miscible with ether, and ethanol
