Acetone-1,3-dicarboxylic acid is used as a building block in organic chemistry. It is also used in the synthesis of hetrocyclic rings and in the Weiss-Cook reaction, which involves the preparation of cis-bicyclo[3.3.0]octane-3,7-dione by reacting with diacyl (1,2 ketone). Its presence in human urine is used as a diagnostic test for the overgrowth of harmful gut flora such as Candida albicans.
For use in Robinson's classical one-step synthesis of pseudopelletierine, see: Org. Synth. Coll., 4, 816 (1963):
