Benzyl benzoate is the ester of benzoic acid and benzyl alcohol. Above 18C benzyl benzoate is a colourless, transparent, viscous liquid which is insoluble in water but miscible with many organic solvents. Below 18C it is a white solid.
PLEASE NOTE: In winter, because the freezing point of benzyl benzoate is 18C it may become solid. The package of benzyl benzoate needs to be placed in a hot air chamber (35-70C) or in a warm water bath (40-90C). After it has fully melted it will be a uniform liquid. The freezing and thawing cycle of the product will not affect the quality of the product.
