Applications

Vanillin is a flavoring agent used in sweet foods, ice cream and chocolate. It is used in perfumes as well as to control the unpleasant odors in medicines. It acts as a chemical intermediate in the preparation of pharmaceuticals. In thin layer chromatography, it is used as a general-purpose stain for developing TLC plates to enable in visualizing components of a reaction mixture. Similarly, vanillin hydro chloride staining can be used to visualize the localization of tannins in cells.
