3-Hydroxybenzoic acid Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertieswhite to light yellow crystal powder
  • UsesIntermediate for plasticizers, resins, light stabiliziers, petroleum additives, pharmaceuticals.
  • Usesm- Hydroxybenzoic acid is reported as an intermediate in the manufacture of germicides, preservatives, pharmaceuticals, and plasticizer.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A monohydroxybenzoic acid that is benzoic acid substituted by a hydroxy group at position 3. It has been isolated from Taxus baccata.
  • Reactionsm-Hydroxybenzoic Acid, of the three hydroxybenzoic acids, the metaisomer is of least commercial importance. Unlike salicylic acid, m-hydroxybenzoic acid does not undergo the Friedel-Crafts reaction. It can be converted in 80% yield to m-aminophenol by the Schmidt reaction, which involves treating the acid with hydrazoic acid in trichloroethylene in the presence of sulfuric acid at 40 °C.
  • Synthesis Reference(s)Tetrahedron Letters, 9, p. 3845, 1968 DOI: 10.1016/S0040-4039(01)99116-6
  • Purification MethodsCrystallise the hydroxyacid from absolute EtOH. [Beilstein 10 IV 315.]
