Synthesis method

1. Obtained from the reaction of resorcinol and dimethyl sulfate.

2. 1,3-Dimethoxybenzene is produced by the reaction of resorcinol and dimethyl sulfate.

Mix resorcinol and sodium hydroxide solution, add dimethyl sulfate under stirring, carry out methylation reaction at 26~30℃, and then separate, wash and distill to obtain the finished product .
In laboratory preparation, add resorcinol (1mol), 200mL methanol and dimethyl sulfate (1mol) to the reactor, stir to dissolve, cool to -5°C in an ice-salt bath, and immediately add 150g of hydrogen The solution prepared by potassium oxide and 350 mL of water reacted violently, and the methylation reaction was completed within 3 minutes. After stirring for 5 minutes, add water to dilute, separate the oil layer, extract the water layer with ether, combine the oil layer and ether extracts, wash with water, dry with anhydrous calcium chloride, recover the ether on a water bath, then heat and distill with direct fire, collect From the 216-218°C fraction, 124g of 1,3-dimethoxybenzene can be obtained, with a yield of 90%.


1. 1,3-Dimethoxybenzene is an intermediate in the synthesis of the acaricide fenfenzoate and can also be used to prepare the ultraviolet absorber UV-9.

2. Used as an intermediate for naphthalene dyes, coatings and plastics, and as a fragrance in soaps, detergents and ointments.

3. Used as pharmaceutical intermediates.

4. Used as an organic synthesis intermediate, react with benzoyl chloride under the catalysis of aluminum trichloride to obtain 2,4-dimethoxybenzophenone. This is an intermediate for UV absorber UV-9.
