    Applications
    4-Hydroxybenzoic acid is used as an intermediate for dyes, antiseptics and active pharmaceutical ingredients. It is also used as a food preservative, corrosion inhibitor, anti-oxidant and an emulsifier. It reacts with 6-hydroxynaphthalene-2-carboxylic acid to prepare aromatic polyester called Vectran fiber. It acts as a precursor to prepare p-hydroxyphenylbenzoate, p-acetoxybenzoyl chloride and 4,4 ft.-dihydroxybenzophenone. Further, it is used in paint additives, coating additives, processing aids, electrical and electronic products. In addition to this, it acts as a preservative in cosmetics and some ophthalmic solutions.
