(Bromomethyl)cyclopropane is used in the synthesis of 1,4-dienes by iron-catalyzed cross-coupling with alkenyl Grignard reagents. It has been used as a synthetic building block for the introduction of the cyclopropylmethyl group.

O-Alkylation of phenols (KO-t-Bu/DMF) has been used as a means of protection. The cyclopropylmethyl ethers are stable to reducing agents (metal hydride, H2, Birch), but selectively cleaved by aqueous methanolic HCl: Chem. Pharm. Bull., 23, 2878 (1975).
