Benzaldehyde is a chemical and color aldehyde having almond odor. Benzaldehyde can be produced by oxidation of toluene, or treating benzal chloride with an alkali such as sodium hydroxide. The most widely accepted process for extracting synthetic benzaldehyde is air oxidation of toluene. The air oxidation process can be facilitated by two methods that include vapor-phase oxidation process, and liquid-phase oxidation process. In the past, the vapor-phase oxidation process was used to extract benzaldehyde. Currently the liquid-phase oxidation process is widely used, while the process was introduced in 1950s by The Dow Chemical Company. Benzaldehyde is naturally found in various foods, such as cherries, apricot, peach pits, and almonds. In the chemical industries, it is widely used for the production of perfumes, mandelic acids, and dyes. In the cosmetics industry, it is used as a denaturant, as a fragrance, and flavoring agent.
