Methyl Salicylate USP NF Grade Specifications
C8H8O3 -- 152.15
Benzoic acid, 2-hydroxy-, methyl ester
Methyl salicylate CAS 119-36-8

Methyl Salicylate is produced synthetically or is obtained by maceration and subsequent distillation with steam from the leaves of Gaultheria procumbens L. (Fam. Ericaceae) or from the bark of Betula lenta L. (Fam. Betulaceae). It contains NLT 98.0% and NMT 100.5% of methyl salicylate (C8H8O3).
A. Infrared Absorption 〈197F〉
B. Chromatographic Identity: To pass the test.

To pass the test by Chromatography.
Acceptance criteria: 98.0%–100.5%

Limit of Salicylic Acid and Dimethyl 4-Hydroxyisophthalate: To pass the test.
Acceptance criteria:
Salicylic acid: NMT 0.1%
Dimethyl 4-hydroxyisophthalate: NMT 0.5%
Solubility in 70% Alcohol: One volume of synthetic Methyl Salicylate dissolves in seven volumes of 70% alcohol. One volume of natural Methyl Salicylate dissolves in seven volumes of 70% alcohol, the solution shows NMT a slight cloudiness.
Specific Gravity: 1.180–1.185 for the synthetic variety; 1.176–1.182 for the natural variety.
Optical Rotation, Angular Rotation: Synthetic Methyl Salicylate and that from Betula lenta are optically inactive. Methyl Salicylate from Gaultheria procumbens is slightly levorotatory, the angular rotation not exceeding −1.5° in a 100-mm tube.

Wintergreen Oil FCC Food and Flavoring Grade Specifications
Gaultheria Oil
CAS 68917-75-9

Wintergreen Oil occurs as a colorless to yellow liquid withthe characteristic odor and taste of wintergreen. It is obtained by maceration and subsequent distillation with steam from the leaves of Gualtheria procumbens L. (Fam. Ericaceae) or from the bark of Betula lenta L. (Fam. Betulaceae). It boils, with decomposition, between 219C and 224C. It is soluble in alcohol and in glacial acetic acid, and it is very slightly soluble in water.
Function: Flavoring agent.

A. Shake 1 drop of sample with about 5 mL of water, and add 1 drop of ferric chloride. A deep violet color appears.
B. The infrared absorption spectrum of the sample exhibits relative maxima at the same wavelengths as those of a typical spectrum as shown in the section on Infrared Spectra, using the same test conditions as specified therein.
Assay: Not less than 98.0% and not more than 100.5% of methyl salicylate (C8H8O3).
Acid Value: Not more than 1.0.
Angular Rotation: Slightly levorotatory, exhibiting a rotation of not more than 1.5°.
Refractive Index: Between 1.535 and 1.538 at 20C.
Solubility in Alcohol: Passes test.
Specific Gravity: Between 1.176 and 1.182.
