Properties and stability

1. Chemical properties: When heated to 200°C with potassium hydroxide under pressure, o-methoxyphenol and methanol are generated. It does not interact with alkali metals at room temperature. It decomposes into phenate and methanol when heated at high temperatures. Reacts with hydriodic acid to produce catechol and methyl iodide. Decomposition reactions can occur with aluminum trichloride and aluminum tribromide.

2. It is a flammable substance. In the event of a fire, foam fire extinguishing agents, carbon dioxide or dry chemical fire extinguishing agents can be used to extinguish the fire.

3. Found in burley tobacco leaves and oriental tobacco leaves.

Storage method

Should be sealed and stored in a cool place.

Synthesis method

1. Obtained from methylation of guaiacol or catechol.

2. Refining method: The main impurities include catechol, peroxide and aldehyde. Catechol can be removed by washing with water. The aldehyde is removed by precipitation with p-nitrophenylhydrazine. O-dimethoxybenzene can also be refined by recrystallization of petroleum ether.

3. Obtain crystals from petroleum ether.

4. Tobacco: BU, 14; OR, 57.


It is used as an intermediate in organic synthesis and in the pharmaceutical industry for the synthesis of tetrahydropydalin; verapamil, etc. This product is also a reagent for testing lactic acid in blood and measuring glycerol. Used in spices and preservatives.
