Methyl phenylsulfonylacetate has been used in a key step during the synthesis of (-)-hybridalactone, marine eicosanoid isolated from the red alga Laurencia hybrida, in dehydrative alkylation of alcohols under modified Mitsunobu conditions followed by desulfonylation using magnesium, in three step synthesis of 2-(hydroxymethyl)indene.
