Methyl p-toluenesulfonate is used as a methylating agent in organic synthesis. It acts as a catalyst for alkyd resins. It is also employed in selective 1-substitution reaction of tetrazole. Further, it is used in the preparation of dyes.
Found to give quantitative alkylation of the lithio-derivatives of enol acetates, whereas alkyl iodides give only modest yields: Synth. Commun., 3, 67 (1973).
