2,4,6-Trimethylaniline is useful for the preparation of Grubbs' catalyst. It is used as a precursor to dyes. It undergoes condensation reaction with glyoxal to prepare glyoxal-bis(mesitylimine). It is also involved in the preparation of 1,3-diketimines ligands by condensation with 1,3-diketones. Further, it is used for the production of Acid Blue 129 dye, which is useful in histochemistry studies. In addition to this, it serves as a building block to various bulky ligands.
