Benzimidazole was used as template compound in the preparation of molecularly imprinted polymer via electropolymerization and electrodeposition of pyrrole on a pencil graphite electrode . It was also used in the preparation of benzimidazolium surfactant, 1-hexadecyl-1H-benzimidazole.
Because of the low-cost and large-scale availability of formic acid by carbonylation of methanol and hydrolysis of the resulting methyl formate, sodium formate is usually prepared by neutralizing formic acid with sodium hydroxide. Sodium formate is also unavoidably formed as a by-product in the final step of the pentaerythritol synthesis and in the crossed Cannizzaro reaction of formaldehyde with the aldol reaction product trimethylol acetaldehyde [3-hydroxy-2,2-bis(hydroxymethyl)propanal].
