Cas No. 15069-92-8 5-Hydroxypicolinic acid
Appearance：Off-white to gray solid
5-hydroxy-2-pyridinecarboxylic acid is an organic compound. It is a type of white solid with multiple applications. 5-hydroxy-2-pyridinecarboxylic acid is an important intermediate and synthetic raw material, widely used in pharmaceutical chemistry. It can be used to synthesize various drugs and bioactive molecules, such as antibiotics, antiviral drugs, anti-tumor drugs, etc. The following are the synthesis intermediates of 5-hydroxy-2-pyridinecarboxylic acid in some common APIs:
- Aspirin: Aspirin is a commonly used over-the-counter drug used to relieve pain, reduce fever, and anti-inflammatory. 5-hydroxy-2-pyridinecarboxylic acid is one of the important intermediates in the synthesis of aspirin. It undergoes an esterification reaction with acetic anhydride to form the acetate of aspirin, which is then hydrolyzed to obtain the final product of aspirin.
- Piracetam: Piracetam is a brain function improver widely used to improve memory and cognitive function. 5-hydroxy-2-pyridinecarboxylic acid can serve as an intermediate in the synthesis of pyracetam, forming pyracetam by reacting with 2-aminoethanol.
