Ethyl benzoylacetate is used as a flavoring agent and an intermediate in organic synthesis. Further, it is used in the preparation of triazipinones, iodonium ylides, ethyl 2-fluoro-2-benzolyacetate and benzo[c]furan-4,7-diones. It is involved in the Clisen condensation reaction with malononitrile to prepare 2-cyano-5-phenyl-3,5-dioxopentanonitrile.
Has been used in a one-pot synthesis of ɑ-substituted acrylic esters: Synth. Commun., 18, 1213 (1988):
