4-Methoxy-3-buten-2-one is an important precursor for the synthesis of 1-methoxy-3-trimethylsilyloxy-1,3-butadiene and the Danishefsky diene and its equivalent. It is widely used as a reactant in the synthesis of hydroisoquinoline derivatives. It is employed as an intermediate for the synthesis of manzamine.
