Precursor to a variety of chelating agents.Salicylaldehyde is used as a precursor to prepare catechol, benzofuran, salicylaldehydimine and 3-carbethoxycoumarin. It is used for colorimetric assay of isoleucine as well as utilized for the determination of primary amine by fluorescence method. It is a key starting material to a various chelating agents. It is used as flavor and fragrance components. Its derivative salicylaldehyde thiosemicarbazone is used for the simultaneous determination of molybdenum and iron by spectrophotometric method.
A convenient method for the racemization of amino acids consists in heating in acetic acid with 0.05 equivalents of an aldehyde, such as salicylaldehyde: J. Org. Chem., 48, 843 (1983).
For a review of the use of circular dichroism studies of salicylidene derivatives of chiral amines, to establish their absolute configurations using the "salicylidene chirality rule", see: Chem. Rev., 83, 359 (1983).
