Description

Application

Anisole may undergo:
• Zeolite-catalyzed Friedel-Crafts acylation with acetic anhydride in acetic acid to form 4-methoxyacetophenone with high selectivity.
• Bismuth triflate-catalyzed Friedel-Crafts benzoylation with benzoic anhydride to form 4-methoxybenzophenone under solvent-free microwave irradiation.

It may also be used as a surrogate for lignin primary tar in pyrolysis experiments.
