Application

4-Aminobenzoic acid (4-ABA) can be used in the synthesis of:
  • Schiff bases based on 4-ABA with good antibacterial activity.
  • Co(II) and Mn(II) salts of 4-ABA supported on silica gel which in turn can be used as catalysts in oxidation of thiols to disulfides.
  • 4-amino-3-bromobenzoic acid.
  • Curing agent, N-(4-carboxyphenyl)trimellitimide (NCPT).
