A novel synthetic method of the important intermediate compound of mesotrione,4-(methylsulfonyl)-2-nitrobenzoic acid,was reported in detail.[Methods] The compound was synthesized from o-nitrobenzene by three steps including sulfonation,oxidation,and so on.The reaction condition was optimized.[Results] The cost of production was induced to $50?000 per ton.[Conclusions] Its preparing process is simple and low-cost,which is suitable for industrial scale manufacture.
