Chemical Structure

3-Nitrobenzoic acid

Product Introduction:

3-Nitrobenzoic acid (3NBA), also known as m-nitrobenzoic acid, is an organic compound with a chemical formula of C7H5NO4, which is the product of replacing the hydrogen on the meta-position of the benzene ring of benzoic acid with a nitro group. One of the isomers of formic acid.

It is found in many plants, mushrooms and hydrocarbons. It is one of the most important chemicals in nature and a very useful material in many applications.

It has the following properties:

  • White is yellowish monoclinic leaf-like crystal. Soluble in acetone, chloroform, ethanol and ether, slightly soluble in benzene, water, carbon disulfide and petroleum ether, more soluble in hot water. It smells like almonds.
  • It is a strong hydroxyl oxidant that reacts with compounds containing free hydroxyl groups such as free amino or sulfhydryl groups.
  • It will react with nitrile containing compounds and esters such as N-nitrosoaniline, 4-nitrophenol and 4-nitrophenol.
  • It also reacts with organic nitroso compounds such as 4-nitrophenol or 3-hydroxy-4-nitrophenol.
  • In the presence of water, it reacts with various carboxylic acids and acid halides such as ethyl, propane, butane, hexane and heptane. It is an effective oxidant for oxidation reactions in organic synthesis.
  • It is a strong oxidant that decomposes liquid nitric acid at temperatures above 250°C and solid nitric acid at temperatures below 200°C.

It is mainly used as an intermediate of photosensitive materials and drugs, and plays an important role in the pharmaceutical industry. For detailed usage, please read the function and usage of 3-nitrobenzoic acid below.

Product Usage:

3-Nitrobenzoic acid is used in many different industries and applications. It is an intermediate of photosensitive materials, functional pigments and drugs. It can also be used to make various organic compounds used to make plastics, paints and resins.

Drug use:

3-Nitrobenzoic acid is used as a raw material for the production of pharmaceutical intermediates. It is used as an intermediate in the manufacture of drugs and other chemicals.

It is mainly used for synthesizing angiogenesis-influencing drugs-cholesteric acid, etc., and is a widely used pharmaceutical and dye intermediate.

It is a key ingredient in the production of many pharmaceutical intermediates such as 3-nitrobenzene, 3-nitropropane and 3-nitrophenol.

It has been widely used to produce small molecules such as antibiotics and antifungals. It is also used to produce new antiepileptic drugs.

It has been used as an insecticide, herbicide, fungicide and disinfectant.

Other uses:

3-Nitrobenzoic acid is also used to produce green and red colors in paints, plastics, ceramics and glass.

It is a precursor of 3-aminobenzoic acid, used in the preparation of certain dyes.

It is also used as a precursor for other nitro groups, for example, it can be catalytically reduced with 1-nitro-1H-imidazole (as an intermediate) to form 1-nitrobenzocycloheptane.

It is a reagent for the coupling of allyl acetate with allyl, aliphatic and benzyl alcohols. It has also been used as a chemoattractant against Pseudomonas strains.

It is used as a metal ion precipitant for the determination of alkaloids and metal thorium, and is a standard for the determination of carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen in organic trace analysis.

3-Nitrobenzoic acid is a strong oxidant used in the synthesis of many important chemicals such as 3-nitrobenzene and nitroso compounds.
