(N,N-Dimethyl)methyleneammonium iodide is a useful reagent for many synthetic applications like aminomethylation. It is also essential for the conversion of ketones to α, β-unsaturated enones. It is utilized to prepare derivatives of the type RCH2N(CH3)2. It is extensively used in medicines like painkillers and sedatives- Tramadol hydrochloride intermediate viz. 2-dimethylamine methylcyclohexanone. It is also employed in reactive dyes, synthesized spices. It plays an essential role in Mannich reactions.
Crystalline salt of the Mannich intermediate, used by Eschenmoser to introduce a dimethylaminomethyl group into the corrin nucleus: Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 10, 330 (1971). Enolates of ketones, esters and lactones give the Mannich bases from which the ɑ-methylene derivatives can be prepared by quaternization and elimination: Tetrahedron Lett., 1621 (1977). Malonate esters are converted to ɑ-substituted acrylates: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 104, 6787 (1982); 108, 8068 (1986); J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 480 (1989).
The dimethylaminomethylenation of phenols gives high yields and shows a high ortho-regioselectivity: Synthesis, 906 (1983). Indoles are converted almost quantitatively to their 3-dimethylaminomethyl derivatives: Heterocycles, 14, 55 (1980)./n
