Cinnamic acid Description:

Cinnamic acid is an organic compound that is slightly solublein water. Classified as an unsaturated carboxylic acid, it occurs naturally in a number of plants. It is freely soluble in many organic solvents.
It is obtained from oil of cinnamon, or from balsams such as storax. It is also found in shea butter. Cinnamic acid has a honey-like odor; It and its more volatile ethyl ester (ethyl cinnamate) are flavor components in the essential oil of cinnamon, in which related cinnamaldehyde is the major constituent. Cinnamic acid is also part of the biosynthetic shikimate andphenylpropanoid pathways. Its biosynthesis is performed by action of the enzyme phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) onphenylalanine.

Cinnamic acid Application:

Cinnamic acid is used in flavors, synthetic indigo, and certain pharmaceuticals. A major use is in the manufacturing of the methyl, ethyl, and benzyl esters for the perfume industry. Cinnamic acid is a precursor to the sweetener aspartame via enzyme-catalysed amination to phenylalanine.
Cinnamic acid is also a kind of self-inhibitor produced by fungal spore to prevent germination.

Cinnamic Acid Uses:
Cinnamic Acid is a flavoring agent that consists of crystalline scales, white in color, with an odor resembling honey and flowers. it is slightly soluble in water, soluble in alcohol, chloroform, acetic acid, acetone, benzene, and most oils, and alkali salts soluble in water. it is obtained by chemical synthesis. it is also termed 3-phenylpro- penoic acid.

fragrance & flavoring agent, antidiabetic
cinnamic acid has sunscreen capabilities. Some manufacturers use it to replace PABA because of its lower allergic and phototoxic reaction incidence. Cinnamic acid is found in cinnamon leaves and cocoa leaves, and is an essential oil of certain mushrooms. It may cause allergic skin rashes.

1. It can be used as raw materials for the manufacturing of ester, spices and pharmaceuticals.
2. It can be used for chemical reagents as well as being used for the synthetic of perfume and pharmaceutical.
3. GB 2760-96 provides it for allowable edible flavors. It is mainly used for the preparation of spices and cherries, apricots, honey flavor. It can also applied to the anti-corrosion protection of fresh fruits and vegetables.
