Ester is a class of chemical compounds that comprises carbonyl group as the functional group. Several short-chain esters are distinct in properties and many esters exist naturally in essential oils of plants. Different esters account for distinct specific fruity fragrances and however, a single compound plays a significant role. Esters are widely used across various domains and are used forflavor, fragrance, food & cosmetics.
Isoamyl acetate is a clear, colorless liquid with a banana-like odor. It accounts for the most significant esters in food industries. Owing to its odour characteristics, it is broadly used as a component in flavoring and perfumes. Unlike the characteristics, Isoamyl acetate possesses high solvency property and is used as solvents for coatings, paints, adhesives, cellulose, plastics, fats and wood stains. Ester production is normally carried out in three ways, plant extraction, chemical synthesis and biological synthesis. Out of which, plant extraction is an expensive affair as it involves extensive amount of work required to produce only minor quality of ester.
The synthesis process for isoamyl acetate involves acetic acid and acetic anhydride are the most common acyl donors. The conversion is found to be minimizedas the concentration of acetic acid increases. This may be because the acetic acid is bound to the enzyme intermediate which dissolves in the microaqueous layer surrounding the enzyme causing protein denaturation.
