Cyclobutanone is used in preparation of cyclobutane derivatives. It is used as a starting material for aminocyclobutanecarboxylic acid through sulfonyloxiranes. It is also used to prepare dihydro-furan-2-one in presence of polystyrene-bound phenylselenic acid as catalyst. Further, it is involved in the photochemical synthesis of nucleoside analogues such as bicyclic nucleosides and isonucleosides.
