3-Methoxybenzoic acid Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

white to light yellow crystal powder

Chemical Properties

3-Methoxybenzoic acid is practically odorless.


3-Methoxybenzoic acid is used in the synthesis and characterization of 3-methoxybenzoates of europium (III) and gadolinium (III)1. It was used in conversion of aromatic carboxylic acids into methyl esters and reduction to the corresponding primary alcohols using a sodium borohydride-THF-methanol system

General Description

3-Methoxybenzoic acid is an important intermediate in the synthesis of natural products.

Safety Profile

Poison by intraperitoneal route.When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke andirritating fumes.

Purification Methods

Crystallise m-anisic acid from H2O (m 109o, 110.5o) or EtOH/water. The S-benzylisothiuronium salt has m 176o (from EtOH). [Beilstein 10 II 80, 10 III 244, 10 IV 316.]
