ortho-guaiacol, 90-05-1 - The Good Scents Company

Approximately 50% of synthetic catechol is consumed in theproduction of pesticides, the remainder being used as a precursorto fine chemicals such as perfumes and pharmaceuticals.It is a common building block in . Severalindustrially significant flavors and fragrances are preparedstarting from catechol. Guaiacol, 2-methoxyphenol, is prepared bymethylation of catechol and then converted to vanillin on a scaleof about 10M kg per year (1990). The related monoethyl ether ofcatechol, guethol, is converted to "ethylvanillin", a component ofchocolate confectionaries. 3-trans-isocamphylcyclohexanol(CAS#3407-42-9), widely used as a replacement for ,is prepared from catechol via guaiacol and . Piperonal (CAS#120-57-0), a floweryscent, is prepared from the methylene diether of catechol followedby condensation with glyoxal and decarboxylation.

Functional use(s) - flavor and fragrance agents. Has a phenolic type odor and an woody type flavor.
