It finds it application as a building block used in medicinal chemistry synthesis. 4-Chloro-2-methylthiopyrimidine is used in the total synthesis of the marine alkaloid variolin B1 and 2-hydroxy-4-pyrimidinecarboxylic acid. It is also used in the synthesis of 2,4-disubstituted pyrimidines, a novel class of KDR kinase inhibitors.
