About Benzoates

Benzoate Formula Diagram (C6H5CO2)

Benzoates are salts or esters of benzoic acid. The systematic name for benzoate is benzenecarboxylate. Notable types of these compounds used in industry include sodium benzoate and potassium benzoates, which are both used widely as preservatives in food, medicine, and cosmetics. Organic benzoates are often used as organic solvents or as plasticizers. Additionally, some organic benzoates have useful properties as pharmaceuticals; notably, benzyl benzoate is an effective and inexpensive repellant and/or treatment for a variety of infectious insects, worms, and mites, and is used in both human and veterinary medicine.

American Elements manufactures multiple forms of benzoate compounds including solutions, nanopowders, submicron, and -325 mesh powders, and high surface area materials with particle distribution and particle size controlled and certified. We also produce larger -40 mesh, -100 mesh, -200 mesh range sizes and <0.5 mm, 2 mm, 5 mm and other sizes of shot, granules, lump, flake and pieces. Purities include 99%, 99.9%, 99.99%, 99.999% and 99.9999% (2N, 3N, 4N, 5N and 6N).

American Elements maintains industrial scale production for all its benzoate products and will execute Non-Disclosure or Confidentiality Agreements to protect customer know-how.
