    Methyl Anthranilate is an essential aromachemical for orange flower notes, as well as jasmine and tuberose. It has a distinctly grape-like odour which makes it great for fruit bases also. 

    Methyl anthranilate has impact from very low amounts and is very beautiful when used in a Mellis accord with Hydroxycitronellal, Eugenol, Patchouli and Benzyl Salicylate.

    Methyl Anthranilate reacts with certain materials to form schiff bases. More information on that is below.

    Appearance: Colourless liquid
    Longevity: Lasts > 24 hours on a smelling strip.

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    Usage Restrictions

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA50: 100%
    EU 1223/2009: 100%

    These are derived from calculated concentrations which do not replace chromatographic quantification on individual lots. Disclaimer...

    Schiff Bases And Considerations

    According to Steffen Arctander, “[t]his ester is widely used in perfume compositions as a sweet-floral Orangeblossom-type ingredient. Often applied in combination with Petitgrain oil, it supplies much of the background in Cashmere bouquet type fragrances and other Oriental, heavy floral or sweet-woody types.

    Methyl anthranilate condensation products with various aldehydes (Schiff’s bases) or with Acetophenone, Musk Ketone, Ionones, etc. are often utilized in perfume compositions. It should therefore be kept in mind that when Methyl anthranilate is used in compositions with one or more of the named (or other) aldehydes and ketones, there is a good chance of chemical processes taking place in the perfume oil.

    The change may be visually perceptible (color increases, usually to yellow or browninsh tints) or olfactory (intensified sweetness, loss of aldehyde components etc.) and it may take place over a period of from 24 hours up to many months.

    The most popular condensation products are those with the floral aldehydes: hydroxycitronellal (Aurantiol, etc,), Anisaldehyde (Acaciol), etc. Certain aldehydes produce very dark colored condensation products and to should be avoided in compositions where Methyl anthranilate must be used (Citral, Citronella, etc.).

    When the two components enter at very low percentage, there is generally no discoloration problem (several Citrus oils contain Citral and Methyl anthranilate at the same time).”
