CAS number: 123-76-2
No issues of instability/degradation of
The substance is very soluble in EtOH and
in diethylether; soluble in chloroform (David, R.L., 2004). The
substance has been identified as a platform chemical for various
interesting derivatives. The applications and its derivatives have been
reviewed extensively and a number of interesting chemical reactions of
the substance was provided. Functional group transformations involving
the carboxylic-, carbonyl- and methyl-group as well as typical oxidation
and reduction reactions was reported in different conditions (i.e.
solvent, temperature) without issues of instability/degradation of
starting material before the desired reaction (Bozell, J. J. et al.
