Propargyl alcohol is a solvent stabilizer that is useful as an intermediate in organic synthesis, an electroplating brightener additive. It is useful 3-carbon fragment in acetylene coupling reactions, It undergoes Pd-catalyzed O-coupling with alcohols to give the corresponding 1-methoxyallyl ethers.

Useful 3-carbon fragment in acetylene coupling reactions. The hydroxyl group can be protected as its THP ether; see, e.g.: Org. Synth., 76, 178 (1998), or 1-ethoxyethyl ether (see Ethyl vinyl ether, A15691): Org. Synth., 76, 199 (1998). C-Alkylation can also be accomplished without O-protection by using 2 equivalents of base (LiNH2); see, e.g., J. Chem. Soc., Perkin 1, 85 (1988); Org. Synth. Coll., 8, 415 (1993).
O-methylation, followed by treatment with t-BuOK affords methoxyallene, a valuable reactive intermediate. It undergoes Pd-catalyzed O-coupling with alcohols to give the corresponding 1-methoxyallyl ethers: Synlett, 192 (1998). Lithiation leads to 1-lithio-1-methoxyallene: J. Org. Chem., 50, 5308 (1985); 58, 6377 (1993). For a brief feature on methoxyallene with further examples, see: Synlett, 1697 (2000).
