Description

Application

(R)-(-)-2-Methoxy-2-phenylethanol can be employed as a precursor to prepare:
•  (−)-3-[(2R)-2-Methoxy-2-phenylethoxy]phenol, a key intermediate for the synthesis of C4-symmetric tetraalkoxy[4]resorcinarenes using boron trifluoride catalyst.
•  N-substituent of the 6,7-benzomorphan scaffold that is used as a potent opioid receptor agonist.
•  Sodium methoxyphenylethoxide (Na-MPE), which is used as an oxy-initiator in the anionic polymerization of n-hexyl isocyanate.
