Pyruvic aldehyde dimethyl acetal was used in the synthesis of methylglyoxal via hydrolysis in the presence of H2SO4. It was used to investigate the effects of methylglyoxal-mediated glycation on the structure, thermal stability and enzyme activity of yeast enolase in vivo.

The cyclohexylimine or the N,N-dimethylhydrazone can be lithiated at the methyl group with LDA to give useful synthetic species capable of alkylation, etc.: Synthesis, 198 (1977). For a review of the alkylation of nitrogen derivatives of carbonyl compounds, see: Synthesis, 517 (1983).
