Anisole

                         
  • Anisole, or methoxybenzene, is the organic compound with the formula CH3OC6H5. It is a colorless liquid with a smell reminiscent of anise seed, and in fact many of its derivatives are found in natural and artificial fragrances.
  • It is a straw-colored to colorless liquid with an agreeable spicy-sweet odor. It is used in perfumes, as a flavoring in food and in the manufacture of other chemicals.
  • Anisole undergoes electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction more quickly than does benzene, which in turn reacts more quickly than nitrobenzene.
