Applications

Methyl chloroacetate is used as a solvent and chemical intermediate. It acts as a precursor in the preparation of (carboxymethyl) trimethylammonium chloride esters. Further, it is used in the preparation of octakis-(carbethoxymethoxy)calix[8]arene. It is employed as an extraction solvent during the separation of neutral compounds. In addition to this, it is used in the synthesis of dimethyl carbonate.

Notes

Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents and strong bases.
