3-Hydroxybenzophenone is a benzophenone metabolite with potential estrogenic and anti-androgenic activity. is a more attractive hydrogen bonding co-material for MCPBA, as the 3-hydroxyl group is unable to form an intramolecular hydrogen bond. It is commonly used as a radical and cationic photo initiators.
