Applications

1,3-Dichloroacetone is used in the synthesis of citric acid. It is used as a solvent and as an intermediate in organic synthesis. Further, it serves as an acceptor substrate in the cross-aldol reaction with donor substrates such as acetone, cyclopentanone and cyclohexanone. It is also used in the preparation of an active pharmaceutical ingredient, famotidine.

Notes

Hygroscopic. Store in a cool place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, strong bases and reducing agents.

Literature References

Successive reaction with a Grignard reagent and Li metal leads to 1-substituted cyclopropanols, which rearrange on thermolysis to ethyl ketones: Synthesis, 647 (1983):

The cyclization can also be induced by ethyl radicals, generated from ethylmagnesium bromide and FeCl3. This method is applicable only to 1-arylcyclopropanols: J. Org. Chem., 29, 2813 (1964); 43, 3602 (1978); Org. Synth. Coll., 5, 1058 (1973).
