General description

Methyl nicotinate (or nicotinic acid methyl ester) is used as a rubefacient for the relief of pains in muscles, tendons, and joints. It is also used in food as a flavoring agent.

Application

Methyl nicotinate can be employed as a precursor in the synthesis:
  • Di-3-pyridyl ketone ligand, which is used in the preparation of silver(I) complexes for the derivation of coordination polymeric chains.
  • 5-arylnicotinates , ±-sesbanine , and 1,4-dihydropyridine derivatives.
