3,5-Dimethylphenol finds application as adhesives, sealant chemicals, plating and surface treating agents. It is also used as a solvent for cleaning or degreasing. Further, it is employed as a chemical intermediate for antioxidants, phenolic resins, active pharmaceutical ingredients and metaxalone (muscle relaxant).
Reaction of 3 moles of the phenol with sodium borohydride produces the tris(aryloxy) borohydride, a reducing agent of enhanced selectivity which will reduce aldehydes in the presence of ketones: Chem. Lett., 461 (1981).
