Phenyl benzoate was used in the synthesis of soluble polyimides using dianhydride/diamine derivatives. It undergoes Fries rearrangement catalyzed by heteropoly acids to yield the acylated phenols and esters. Phenyl benzoate is considered an excellent starting material for the production of optical components, particularly high quality lenses for still and motion picture cameras.
