Storage method

Stored sealed in a cool, dry place. Make sure the workspace has good ventilation. Keep away from sources of fire and store away from oxidizing agents.

Synthesis method



Used as an additive for brandy to give it a spicy taste. Also used as insecticide. In addition, it is the main anticonvulsant ingredient in Chinese prescriptions for treating epilepsy (white pepper and radish). It is used as a spicy raw material in the food industry and has a bactericidal effect.
