Applications
3-Methoxy-2-methylbenzoic acid is used as a Corey-Bakshi-Shibata oxazaborolidine catalyst for asymmetric reduction and asymmetric synthesis. It is used in the asymmetric reduction of prochiral ketones. Other applications include the enantioselective synthesis of α-hydroxy acids, α-amino acids, C2 symmetrical ferrocenyl diols and propargyl alcohols. It is also used in desymmetrizing reduction leading to (S)-4-hydroxycyclohexenone.

Solubility
Soluble in methanol. Insoluble in water.

Notes
Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with oxidizing agents.
