General description

Phenyl acetate is an aromatic ester. Phenyl acetate levels in urine are marker for the diagnosis of some forms of unipolar major depressive disorders. It undergoes Fries rearrangement to form a mixture of o- and p-hydroxyacetophenones which are useful intermediates in manufacture of pharmaceuticals.

Fries Rearrangement

The Fries rearrangement reaction is an organic name reaction which involves the conversion of phenolic esters into hydroxyaryl ketones on heating in the presence of a catalyst. Suitable catalysts for this reaction are Brønsted or Lewis acids such as HF, AlCl3, BF3, TiCl4, or SnCl4. The Fries rearrangement reaction is an ortho, para-selective reaction, and is used in the preparation of acyl phenols. This organic reaction has been named after German chemist Karl Theophil Fries.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
