Methyl salicylate
USP NF IP BP Ph Eur Wintergreen oil FCC Food Grade Suppliers
Methyl salicylate Oil of wintergreen Wwintergreen oil

Methyl salicylate, oil of wintergreen or wintergreen oil is an ester naturally produced by many species of plants, particularly wintergreens. It is also synthetically produced, used as a fragrance, in foods and beverages, and in liniments. This compound is probably produced as an anti-herbivore defense. If the plant is infected with herbivorous insects, the release of methyl salicylate may function as an aid in the recruitment of beneficial insects to kill the herbivorous insects.
Uses: Analgesic and antiseptic, flavoring agent in chewing gum and mints, fragrance, bait for attracting male orchid bees, to lower the freezing point of glacial acetic acid for transport etc.

Methyl Salicylate BP Grade Specifications
Ph Eur
C8H8O3 -- 152.1 -- 119-36-860-7
Action and use: Counter-irritant.

Methyl 2-hydroxybenzoate.
Content: 99.0 per cent m/m to 100.5 per cent m/m.

Appearance: Colourless or slightly yellow liquid.
Solubility: Very slightly soluble in water, miscible with ethanol (96 per cent) and with fatty and essential oils.

A. Heat 0.25 ml with 2 ml of dilute sodium hydroxide solution on a water-bath for 5 min. Add 3 ml of dilute sulphuric acid. A crystalline precipitate is formed. Filter. The precipitate washed with water and dried at 100C-105C, melts at 156C to 161C.
B. To 10 ml of a saturated solution add 0.05 ml of ferric chloride solution. A violet colour develops.

Appearance of solution: The solution is clear and not more intensely coloured than reference solution.
To 2 ml add 10 ml of ethanol (96 per cent).
Acidity: Dissolve 5.0 g in a mixture of 0.2 ml of bromocresol green solution and 50 ml of ethanol (96 per cent) previously neutralised to a blue colour by addition of 0.1 M sodium hydroxide. Not more than 0.4 ml of 0.1 M sodium hydroxide is required to restore the blue colour.
Relative density: 1.180 to 1.186.
Refractive index: 1.535 to 1.538.

Dissolve 0.500 g in 25 ml of ethanol (96 per cent). Add 0.05 ml of phenol red solution and neutralise with 0.1 M sodium hydroxide. To the neutralised solution add 50.0 ml of 0.1 M sodium hydroxide and heat under a reflux condenser on a water-bath for 30 min. Cool and titrate with 0.1 M hydrochloric acid. Calculate the volume of 0.1 M sodium hydroxide used in the saponification. Carry out a blank titration.
1 ml of 0.1 M sodium hydroxide is equivalent to 15.21 mg of C8H8O3.

Methyl Salicylate IP Grade is also offered.

Methyl Salicylate USP NF Grade Specifications
C8H8O3 -- 152.15 --- CAS 119-36-8
Benzoic acid, 2-hydroxy-, methyl ester.

Methyl Salicylate is produced synthetically or is obtained by maceration and subsequent distillation with steam from the leaves of Gaultheria procumbens Linné (Fam. Ericaceae) or from the bark of Betula lenta Linné (Fam. Betulaceae). It contains not less than 98.0 percent and not more than 100.5 percent of C8H8O3.

Labeling: Label it to indicate whether it was made synthetically or distilled from either of the plants mentioned above.
Solubility in 70 percent alcohol: One volume of synthetic Methyl Salicylate dissolves in 7 volumes of 70 percent alcohol. One volume of natural Methyl Salicylate dissolves in 7 volumes of 70 percent alcohol, the solution having not more than a slight cloudiness.
Identification: Shake 1 drop with about 5 mL of water, and add 1 drop of ferric chloride: the resulting mixture has a deep violet color.
Specific gravity: between 1.180 and 1.185 for the synthetic variety; between 1.176 and 1.182 for the natural variety.
Angular rotation: Synthetic Methyl Salicylate and that from betula are optically inactive. Methyl Salicylate from gaultheria is slightly levorotatory, the angular rotation not exceeding 1.5 degree in a 100-mm tube.
Refractive index: between 1.535 and 1.538 at 20 .
Heavy metals: 20 microgm per g.
Assay: Place about 2 g of Methyl Salicylate, accurately weighed, in a flask, add 40.0 mL of 1 N sodium hydroxide and boil gently under a reflux condenser for 2 hours. Cool, rinse the condenser and the sides of the flask with a few mL of water, add PhPh and titrate the excess alkali with 1 N sulfuric acid. Perform a blank. Each mL of 1 N sodium hydroxide corresponds to 152.2 mg of C8H8O3.

6. Accidental Release Measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment, and emergency procedures: Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Use individual protective equipment (waterproof boots, suitable protective clothing, safety glasses, etc.). Restrict unprotected personnel from the area. Prevent any contact with hot surfaces. Do not approach facing the wind. Do not touch the spilled material.
Environmental precautions: Do not let the product enter drains, soil, or water sources.
Methods and materials used for containment Cleanup procedures and Storage:
Small Spill: Absorb with an inert material and put the spilled material in an appropriate waste disposal.
Large Spill: Avoid touching the spilled material. Do not let the product enter drains. Avoid breathing vapors, mist, or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Contain spilled material. Do not let the product enter drains. Use a shovel to put the material into a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and allow evacuating as per law.

7. Handling and Storage

Precautions for safe handling: Apply according to good manufacturing and industrial hygiene practices. Ensure proper ventilation. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not drink, eat, or smoke while handling. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. Minimize dust generation. Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Use individual protective equipment (waterproof boots, suitable protective clothing, safety glasses, etc.). Prevent any contact with hot surfaces.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in cool, dry, and ventilated area away from heat sources and protected from sunlight in tightly closed original container. Keep air contact to a minimum. Store protected from heat, sparks and ignition sources and incompatible materials. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of dust/mist/vapor. Do not store with incompatible materials like strong oxidizing agents, acids, and bases. Keep away from heat, sun light.

8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Airborne Exposure Limits: Not Specified.
Ventilation System
: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator may be worn. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Other Control Measures: Maintain good housekeeping in work area. Dust deposits on floors and other surfaces may pick up moisture and cause the surfaces to become slippery and present safety hazards. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands after handling.
