3,4-Dimethoxyphenol is used in the preparation of 5,6-dimethoxy benzofuranone derivatives and multi-target anti Alzheimer compounds. It is also used in the preparation of 3,4-dimethoxyphenyl-beta-D-glucopyranoside and 4-(but-2-enyloxy)-1,2-dimethoxybenzene. Further, it serves as a precursor for 4H-chromenes synthesis.
