Application

2-Methoxybenzaldehyde has been used to obtain good enantioselectivities using Cu(OAc)(2)-bis(oxazolines) via hydrogen bonding in asymmetric Henry reaction.
2-Methoxybenzaldehyde has been used to examine the acaricidal activity of Periploca sepium oil and its active component against Tyrophagus putrescentiae.

Packaging

2, 100, 500 g in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Naturally-occurring aromatic aldehyde with acaricidal activity. May condense with L-tryptophan in foods to form the corresponding phenolic tetrahydro-β-carboline-3-carboxylic acid which is a potent antioxidant.
