2-Acetylcyclohexanone is useful for synthesis of anilinoethanolamines, 1-(pyridyl)ethanol derivatives that can reduce keto-esters and ketones. It is also used in the synthesis of phenothiazine derivatives that can inhibit prote in farnesyltransferase molecules and some that show anti-proliferative activity.
