Methoxyacetyl chloride is used as an intermediate for active pharmaceutical ingredients and dyes. Further, it acts as a precursor for the synthesis of agrochemicals.
Reagent for the chloromethylation of aromatics under Friedel-Crafts conditions, avoiding the use of chloromethyl methyl ether: Tetrahedron Lett., 24, 1933 (1983). For a study of the kinetics of chloromethylation of benzene and toluene in the presence of SnCl4, see: J. Org. Chem., 62, 2694 (1997). Compare Methoxyacetic acid, B22917.
Has also been used for the protection of alcohols as methoxyacetate esters, formed in the presence of pyridine, and cleaved using methanolic or aqueous ammonia ca. 20x faster than acetate: Tetrahedron Lett., 4273 (1968). Selective cleavage with Yb(OTf)3: J. Org. Chem., 61, 4491 (1996), or ethanolamine in IPA: J. Org. Chem., 60, 331 (1995), have also been reported.
