Properties and stability

It turns yellow when reacting with sulfuric acid.

Storage method

Stored in a well-ventilated, cool place.

Synthesis method

It is produced by the methylation reaction of salicylaldehyde and dimethyl sulfate. Prepare 3kg sodium hydroxide into a 30% aqueous solution, add it to a solution containing 12.2kg salicylaldehyde and 80L water while stirring, and heat to boiling. Slowly add 12.9kg of dimethyl sulfate, keep the reaction solution refluxing for about 3 hours, then continue refluxing for 2-3 hours, and cool the oil layer.�Wash with 5% sodium hydroxide solution, then wash with water until the pH is 8, add anhydrous potassium carbonate and dry. Filter out the desiccant and then distill under reduced pressure to collect the 120°C (2.0kPa) fraction, which is o-methoxybenzaldehyde. The methylation reaction can also be carried out in the solvent toluene, with a yield of 60%.


Organic synthetic raw materials for the production of medicines and spices. It is also a general organic reagent.
