Launched! High-purity woody acetate (cis‐4-tert-butylcyclohexylacetate)

The presence of an asymmetric carbon atom often causes the chirality in molecules. This means two molecules are mirror images of each other. A lot of molecules, substances and objects have chirality. 4-tert-butylcyclohexylacetate (also refer to woody acetate) is one of them. As a fragrance ingredient, it is widely used as a functional perfumery, such as beauty care, soap, laundry care, and household products. 


4-tert-butylcyclohexylacetate is usually sold as a sum of cis‐ (> 27%) and trans‐isomers (69%–73%). A number of studies disclosed that the fragrance of its cis-isomer is more favorable than that of its trans-isomer, having a creamy, woody, and sweet odor. Even though some brands claim their products have “High Cis”, it has just about 70% of the cis-isomer. 


As a company who focuses on chiral molecules development, Chirial Biomaterial Co., Ltd (short as: Chirial) explored a method to produce high-purity cis-4-tert-butylcyclohexylacetate (with ≥97% cis-isomer). If using this high-purity ingredient, more favorable perfume products can be produced.


By the way, as a professional chiral molecules supplier, Chirial also provide the high-purity trans-isomer of this product (CAS#1900-69-2 (trans-4-tert-butylcyclohexylacetate).
