3,3-Dimethyl-1-butyne is used as an active pharmaceutical intermediate for terbinafine. It is also used in the preparation of 2,2,7,7-tetramethyl-octa-3,5-diyne. Further, it is used in the synthesis of erythro and threo isomers of B-(3,3-dimethyl-1,2-dideuterio-1-butyl)-9-BBN by hydroboration-deuteronolysis-hydroboration sequence.
