Other names :
Adjutan 6016 ; Benzoyl benzene ; Diphenyl ketone ; Diphenyl methanone ; Alpha-oxo diphenyl methane ; Kayacure BP ; Alpha-oxoditane ; Speedcure BP
Uses in perfumery :
Benophenone is used in floral-lily of the valley, rosy and sometimes floral-watery notes (hyacinth…), and in fruity-cherry notes.
Natural availability :
Benzophenone is a compound of the scent principle of grapes, black tea and papaya among others. In perfumery, it is used exclusively in its synthetic form.

Synthesis route :
Benzophenone can be synthesized by a Friedel-Craft reaction from benzene by reaction with benzoyl chloride in the catalytic presence of aluminum chloride (Lewis acid). Another method consists in reacting benzene with tetrachloromethane, forming alpha,alpha-dichlorodiphenylmethane, which can be hydrolysed to Benzophenone. A last method is to oxidize diphenylmethane.
Synthesis precursor :
Benzophenone is not a precursor for the synthesis of another compound of olfactory interest.
Benzophenone does not have any isomer commonly used in perfumery.
