INTRODUCTION
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.

SynonymsMethoxybenzene
Phenyl Methyl Ether

Structure

APPLICATIONS
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.

PharmaceuticalsThe 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.
AgrochemicalsThe 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 CosmeticsThe 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.
InhibitorA feeble but important use of anisole is in production of methyl ether of hydroquinone (MEHQ), which is one of the universal polymerization inhibitors.
ColorantAnisole is a KRM in the manufacture of the dye Disperse Blue 73 from Acid Blue 45.
