Benzyl alcohol is a colorless liquid with a faint sweet scent. Due to its polarization, and low viscosity, it is a reliable solvent. Benzoic alcohol is obtained  by partial  oxidation of toluene and the cycle is facilitated by  manganese naphthenate. It can also be obtained from benzyl acetic acid by methanol hydrolysis. This has a fair water solubility and is blended with alcohol and diethyl ether. Benzyl alcohol is used as a solvent for the manufacture of inks, paints, epoxy resins, and paint strippers in various sectors that have fuelled demand in this market.
