Applications

Mercury(II) acetate is used as a reagent to prepare organomercury compounds and to remove the acetamidomethyl protecting group in organic synthesis. It is also involved in the oxymercuration reactions as well as to prepare dithiocarbonates from thiocarboantes.It finds application as a catalyst in organic synthesis, pharmaceuticals and absorption of ethylene.

Notes

Light sensitive. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, strong acids and strong bases.
