Production Processes

  • Production of Synthetic Anethole via Friedel-Crafts Acylation

In this process, anisole and propionyl chloride undergo Friedel-Crafts acylation reaction to form an initial product, which is further reduced with the help of sodium borohydride. The obtained product is catalytically dehydrated using organic acids and acidic inorganic salt, followed by its distillation to finally produce Synthetic Anethole.
