Properties and stability


Storage method

This product should be sealed and stored in a cool, dry and dark place.

Synthesis method

Add anhydrous aluminum trichloride to carbon disulfide, stir, and add phenyl propionate dropwise. The reaction occurs immediately and hydrogen chloride is released. The carbon disulfide refluxes due to the heat generated by the reaction. After the dropwise addition is completed, the reaction mixture is heated to reflux for 2 hours until hydrogen chloride no longer escapes. The carbon disulfide is evaporated, the temperature is raised to 140-150°C and kept for 3 hours, and hydrogen chloride is released. The resulting resinous substance is cooled, and hydrochloric acid and water are slowly added to decompose the aluminum double salt. Place in the refrigerator overnight, filter, and recrystallize the filter cake with methanol to obtain p-hydroxypropiophenone, with a yield of 34-39%.
