SDS MSDS Sheet of Methyl salicylate BP Wintergreen oil Manufacturers
Pure BP Wintergreen oil FCC Food Grade
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
C8H8O3 -- 152.1 -- 119-36-860-7
Action and use: Counter-irritant.
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.
Wintergreen Oil FCC Food and Flavoring Grade
Wintergreen Oil occurs as a colorless to yellow liquid withthe characteristic odor and taste of wintergreen. It is obtained by maceration and subsequent distillation with steam from the leaves of Gualtheria procumbens L. (Fam. Ericaceae) or from the bark of Betula lenta L. (Fam. Betulaceae). It boils, with decomposition, between 219C and 224C. It is soluble in alcohol and in glacial acetic acid, and it is very slightly soluble in water.
Function: Flavoring agent.
A. Shake 1 drop of sample with about 5 mL of water, and add 1 drop of ferric chloride. A deep violet color appears.
B. The infrared absorption spectrum of the sample exhibits relative maxima at the same wavelengths as those of a typical spectrum as shown in the section on Infrared Spectra, using the same test conditions as specified therein.
Assay: Not less than 98.0% and not more than 100.5% of methyl salicylate (C8H8O3).
Acid Value: Not more than 1.0.
Angular Rotation: Slightly levorotatory, exhibiting a rotation of not more than −1.5°.
Refractive Index: Between 1.535 and 1.538 at 20°.
Solubility in Alcohol: Passes test.
Specific Gravity: Between 1.176 and 1.182.

At high temperatures or when moistened under fire conditions, it may produce toxic or irritating fumes. On decomposition it may emit carbon monoxide. Containers may explode on heating
6. Accidental Release Measures
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. Absorb in vermiculite, dry sand or earth and place into containers. Flush with plenty of water to clean spillage area. Do not contaminate water sources or sewer. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and dispose of according to local and regional authority requirements. Do not use combustible materials such as sawdust. Provide ventilation.
7. Handling and Storage
Do not breathe dust. Wear suitable protective clothing. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. If you feel unwell, seek medical attention.
Keep Methyl Salicylate in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage. Keep away from heat, sun light and oxidizing agents.
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.
