Applications

o-tolualdehyde was used in determination of alkenal-2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazones by HPLC by addition of phosphoric acid. It produces to give a single diastereomer of the tetrahydronaphthalene derivative under UV irradiation.

Under u.v. irradiation, o-tolualdehyde generates exclusively the (E)-dienol form which may be trapped by cycloaddition with the acrylate (or fumarate) ester of methyl lactate, to give a single diastereomer of the tetrahydronaphthalene derivative: Can. J. Chem., 67, 574 (1989):
