|(what is ?)|
Benzisoxazole is an aromatic organic compound with a molecular formula C7H5NO containing a benzene-fused isoxazole ring structure. Benzisoxazole has no household use. It is used primarily in industry and research.
Being a heterocyclic compound, benzisoxazole finds use in research as a starting material for the synthesis of larger, usually bioactive structures.
Its aromaticity makes it relatively stable, although as a heterocycle, it has reactive sites which allow for functionalization.
