Methyl 2,6-dihydroxybenzoate may be used for the preparation of methyl 2-hydroxy-6-methoxybenzoate and oxamyl propionic acid.
Methyl 2,6-dihydroxybenzoate can be synthesized from 2,6-dihydroxybenzoic acid. Multiple fluorescences in methyl 2,6-dihydroxybenzoate have been investigated. Its short wavelength (387) and long wavelength (500) emissions are reported to arise from extramolecularly hydrogen-bonded and intramolecularly hydrogen-bonded species.
