The aromatic is a liquid with a pleasant odor. The active methoxy group attached to a benzene ring renders a high amount of reactivity to the molecule. Worldwide, anisole is commercially produced by methylation of phenol.
Phenyl Methyl Ether
Methyl Phenyl Ether
Anisole is used in various industry verticals including but not limited to manufacture of API, colorants, cosmetics, flavor & fragrance chemicals, polymerization inhibitors, antioxidants, and agrochemicals. It is also consumed as solvent in various chemicals processes.
|Pharmaceuticals||The sweet aromatic is a key starting compound in the manufacture of Tamoxifen, Guaifenesin, Carvedilol, Ranolazine and Methocarbamol. In the process, anisole is first converted into Guaiacol, which is an antioxidant. Guaiacol is then used to synthesize some of the above APIs.|
|Agrochemicals||The methoxylated benzene acts as an insect pheromone and it also finds usage in manufacture of Ancymidole (a plant growth regulator) and Methoxychlor (an insecticide).|
|Flavors, Fragrances, and Cosmetics||The aromatic compound is extensively employed, thanks to its odor, for production of F&F chemicals such as Anethole, p-anisaldehyde, Guaiacol, 4-methoxyacetophenone, etc. From the last compound, cosmetic ingredient Avobenzone is manufactured.|
|Inhibitor||A feeble but important use of anisole is in production of methyl ether of hydroquinone (MEHQ), which is one of the universal polymerization inhibitors.|
|Colorant||Anisole is a KRM in the manufacture of the dye Disperse Blue 73 from Acid Blue 45.|

Pyrophosphoryl chloride is colourless to pale yellow liquid, reasonably easy to handle. It reacts violently with water & miscible with most organic solvents.
It is used in pharmaceutical and other organic synthesis, as laser materials and electronic components.
Benzilic acid ethyl ester is an oil organic liquid. Its reactivity is attributed to the presence of the hydroxyl group at alpha-position to the carboxylic acid group and hence it participates in various reactions leading to value-added intermediates and APIs.
Dibutyltin laurate is an organotin compound with oily appearance. The lauric acid ester is used in various industrial applications as catalyst.
Pyridine hydrobromide is a white to off-white hygroscopic crystalline solid with melting point/freezing point of 216 °C to 219 °C. It is miscible in water. It used in many chemical synthesis studies.
Chrysanthemic acid is a cyclic organic compound. The product occurs naturally in its ester form in pyrethrum flowers. It is also found as metabolite of pyrenthrins. The acid carries a sweet odor thereby enabling its uses in flavors and is used to synthesize agrochemicals as well.
Propionic Anhydride is a colorless liquid having a pungent odor and high boiling point. It is miscible with most organic solvents. It is soluble in both water and alcohol. It is a widely used reagent in organic synthesis as well as for producing specialty derivatives of cellulose.
2-Cyclohexene-1-one is an organic intermediate used in synthesis of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and fragrances. It is a ketone, or more precisely, an enone.
It is an alkaloid used in the symptomatic relief of pain in attacks of gouty arthritis, pseudogout, sarcodial arthritis, calcific tendinitis and to treat the inflammatory symptoms of Familial Mediterranean Fever.
It appears as odourless or nearly odourless pale yellow needles or powder that darkens on exposure to light.
