General description

2-Phenoxyethanol is used as a fish anesthetic agent.

Application

2-Phenoxyethanol may be used as a starting material to synthesize diorganodiselenides derivatives. It can undergo aromatic alkylation with fluoren-9-one to form 9,9-bis4-(2-hydroxyethoxy)phenylfluorene in the presence of Ti4+ cation-exchanged montmorillonite catalyst.
