Cyanoacetate is a building block for the synthesis of heterocycles and are are used as drugs. It is also used as Pharmaceutical intermediates, or Oil soluble couplers of film raw material . It is also used as a reagent in labelled pyrimidine and purine synthesis. It is used as an intermediate of fine chemicals such as medicine and dyestuff.

Stereoselective alkylation of the active methylene has been accomplished under particularly mild conditions with secondary alkyl mesylates in the presence of CsF in DMF; complete inversion occurs at the secondary alkyl carbon: J. Org. Chem., 60, 2627 (1995).

For examples of Knoevenagel condensations of cyanoacetic esters with carbonyl compounds, see: Org. Synth. Coll., 3, 385, 399 (1955); 4, 93, 463 (1963); review: Org. React., 15, 204 (1967). Knoevenagel condensation with aromatic aldehydes has also been carried out under acidic conditions, for example, good yields have been obtained with ZnCl2: Tetrahedron Lett., 32, 5821 (1991).
