Main Applications of m-Aminophenol (MAP)

Pharmaceutical industry: MAP is used in large quantities to make para-aminosalicylic acid (PAS), a good medicine for tuberculosis.

Dye industry: MAP is used to manufacture N,N-trimethyl -3-aminophenol, mordant and alkaline dye intermediates and photographic developers, 3-anilino phenol and azo dye intermediates. Used to manufacture N,N-diethyl -3-aminophenol, used as an anti-corrosion agent for various dye intermediates and jet fuel; Used to manufacture fur dyes such as fur brown, fur yellow, etc.

Other aspects: MAP can be used as a catalyst for organic chemical reactions, such as the polymerization of propylene oxide and the dimerization of propylene oxide, etc.; used as a metal corrosion inhibitor in alkaline media and synthetic herbicides, pesticides, etc.

In short, MAP is an important organic chemical raw material and intermediate with a wide range of applications. China's current production process is relatively backward, high cost, serious pollution, low output, so to speed up the pace of MAP process reform, as soon as possible to achieve the industrialization of new electrochemical synthesis process and continue to explore new processes is imperative.
