Anisaldehyde Properties


Molecule Structure Image



Anisaldehyde is an organic compound that consists of a benzene ring substituted with an aldehyde and a methoxy group. It is used as an intermediate in the synthesis of other compounds important in pharmaceuticals and perfumery. A solution of para-anisaldehyde in acid and ethanol is frequently used to stain thin layer chromatography plates. It is a particularly useful stain because different spots on the plate can be stained different colors allowing easy distinction.
