4-Nitrophenyl acetate is used with iodoacetic acid for reductive cleavage of methionine-containing peptides. It is also used as a substrate that has been used in assays for esterase and lipase activity. Inorganic complexes have been evaluated for their methanolysis or hydrolysis activity using p-nitrophenyl acetate.
