Basic Information about Cinnamaldehyde
Cinnamaldehyde, or 3-phenylprop-2-enal to use its IUPAC name, is the organic compound with the formula C6H5CH=CHCHO that gives cinnamon its flavor and odor (also known as cinnamic aldehyde).
The natural product is trans-cinnamaldehyde. The molecule consists of a benzene ring attached to an unsaturated aldehyde. As such, the molecule can be viewed as a derivative of acrolein.
Cinnamaldehyde is an oily yellow liquid at room temperature with a boiling point of 246 °C. Cinnamaldehyde can be made synthetically but is more commonly obtained from the steam distillation of the oil of cinnamon bark which is a much more efficient process.
Cinnamaldehyde is mainly used as a flavouring agent or as a scent for candles. It is non-toxic but can irritate skin if in contact for too long. As with many components of essential oils cinnamaldehyde displays antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is also reported to be a good pesticide. These properties support the medicinal and soothing properties of cinnamon bark. This compound makes up about 10% of the oil and displays antiseptic and analgesic properties which may also contribute to cinnamon's soothing effect.
