Polycyclic tris-anhydrotetramer 6 of o-aminobenzaldehyde was synthesized directly from reduction of o-nitrobenzaldehyde and its structure was determined by X-ray crystallography. This provides a practical synthesis of 6, as opposed to starting from the unstable o-aminobenzaldehyde. The tris-anhydrotetramer 6 is useful for the synthesis of a variety of TAAB-metal complexes.

The nitro group can be displaced by nucleophiles. Thus, tert-butanethiol gives 2-tert-butylthiobenzaldehyde, a useful intermediate for thiocoumarins and other sulfur-containing heterocycles: Synthesis, 56 (1978).

2-Nitrobenzaldehyde is used as a starting material in synthetic chemistry. It is used as an intermediate during the synthesis of Indigo dye. It is involved in the preparation of colorants such as Indigo carmine. Further, it serves as a useful photoremovable protecting group as well as utilized in the preparation of o-nitrophenylethylene glycol.
