Hippuric acid is used as a intermediate for the manufacturing medicine and other organic compounds. Hippuric acid can be used to study cell biology, chemical biology, bioactive small molecules, amino acid derivatives, peptide synthesis, chemical synthesis and nutrition. Hippuric acid has been used to inform the metabolism and urinary excretion of procyanidins.

Condensation with aldehydes gives azlactones, which are intermediates in a classical route to amino acids; see, e.g.: Org. Synth. Coll., 2, 489 (1943). An alternative approach involves alkylation of the trianion of hippuric acid, prepared by LDA/TMEDA in THF: Tetrahedron Lett., 2205 (1976).
For cyclization with acetic anhydride to 2-phenyl-5-oxazolone, see: Org. Synth. Coll., 5, 946 (1973).
