3,5-Benzyloxy Acetophenone [CAS No. : 28924-21-2]
3,5-Dibenzyloxyacetophenone was used in the synthesis of enantiomerically pure B-ring modified analogs of (−)-epicatechin gallate.
3′,5′-Dibenzyloxyacetophenone is a synthetic intermediate that can be used in the synthesis of 3-hydroxy-2-phenylpropionic acid. It can also be used to synthesize carbonyl reduction products, such as 3,5-dibenzyloxybenzoic acid and 2,3-dibenzyloxybenzoic acid. The carbonyl reduction reaction mechanism involves the addition of ethylene to the carbonyl group (C=O) and hydrogenation of the double bond between carbon atoms 1 and 2. This process may result in a mixture of products that are degradable or non-degradable and contain impurities.
