2-Cyanobenzoic acid has been used as reactant in the synthesis of T-box riboswitch antiterminator RNA-binding oxazolidinone derivatives, Benzoate modified β-cyclodextrin derivatives and Pyrrolo[1,2-f]triazines for use as JAK2 inhibitors. As a reactant involved in decarboxylation, decarboxylative halogenation and protodecarboxylation.
