Fragrance and Flavoring

DYTEK® nitriles can be used as intermediates for a variety of scents and flavorings. DYTEK® 2PN nitrile is a precursor for pentenoic acid, which is then modified to form pleasant scented fruity esters and fruity flavoring. DYTEK® 2M3BN can be used for the production of compounds such as tiglic acid, angelic acid, or 2-methylbutyric acid. These compounds can be used as either fragrances or flavorings. Tiglic acid provides a spicy, woody, caramel scent and flavor for example.
