Ethyl oxalyl chloride is used in the synthesis of 2-oxo-3-alkenoic esters and alpha-keto ester in good yield. It acts as a reactant in the preparation of oxyoxalamide derivatives as an epoxide hydrolase inhibitor.
Reaction with imidazole, followed by a Grignard reagent, provides a route to ɑ-keto esters, generally in good yield: J. Org. Chem., 46, 211 (1981).
In the presence of pyridine, electron-rich alkenes give 2-oxo-3-alkenoic esters: Synthesis, 137 (1986):
