  • Chemical propertiesIt appears as white needle crystal. It will contain crystal water upon crystallization from the water. It appears as an anhydride at 100 ℃. Melting point 218-219 ° C (it has a melting point of 213 ° C upon thermal shock). Soluble in hot water, ethanol, ether. Cooking in water, acid or salt solution will remove carbon dioxide. It exhibits red color upon reaction with ferric chloride.
  • Application
    • The product has the chemical properties of both resorcinol and salicylic acid. It can be used in chemical reagents for colorimetric determination of iron, titanium and other elements; for organic synthesis, it is mainly used for dyes and pharmaceutical intermediates. 2, 4-dihydroxybenzoic acid is a major raw material during the production of acidic medicated pink 3BM, which consumes 157 kg per ton of dye (by 100%).
    • Used as a dye intermediate, medicine and reagents
    • Used as dyes, pharmaceuticals, pesticide intermediates
  • PreparationIt is derived from the hydroxylation of resorcinol.
  • Chemical Propertiescream to slightly beige or pink crystalline powder
  • Chemical PropertiesDihydroxybenzoic acid is a colorless solid and is used as a flavor modifier.
  • OccurrenceReported present in avocados, beer, red wine, roast coffee, sherry, smoked sausage and white wine
  • UsesIntermediate for dyestuffs and drugs; spot test reagent for iron.
  • PreparationPrepared from resorcinol and potassium bicarbonate in glycerol or water by heating and passing carbon dioxide through the mixture.
  • Purification MethodsCrystallise the acid from water. [Beilstein 10 IV 1420.]
