Preparation of Anisic acid: it is prepared by reaction of hydroxybenzoic acid with dimethyl sulfate. Equation is as follows:

C7H6O3 + (CH3)2SO4 → C8H8O3

Uses of Anisic acid: it is used as a preservative and raw materials of medicine and fragrance. What's more, it is used to produce 4-methoxy-benzoic acid methyl ester by esterification reaction with methanol. The reaction occurs with reagents 4-(4,6-dimethoxy-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)-4-methylmorpholinium Cl, N-methylmorpholine at the temperature of 50 °C for 6 hours. The yield is about 88%.

Anisic acid is uesed to produce 4-methoxy-benzoic acid methyl ester by esterification reaction with methanol.
