Benzyl products are generated by side chain chlorination of toluene. Within this product range we produce benzyl chloride, benzyl alcohol, benzaldehyde, benzotrichloride and benzoylchloride. As downstream derivatives of these products we also offer benzyl acetate, benzyl benzoate and cinnamic aldehyde. Altogether, these products are important raw materials for growing industries like agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, as well as flavors and fragrances.
In order to guarantee for reliability of deliveries worldwide LANXESS is running two state-of-the-art facilities for benzyl products, one in Germany and another in India.
