2,2,2-Trichloroethyl chloroformate is used as a protecting reagent for aliphatic and aromatic hydroxyl and amino groups. It is used as derivatizing reagent in gas chromatographic/mass spectrometric determination of a large range of amphetamine-related drugs and ephedrines in plasma, urine and hair samples, during N-demethylation of dextromethorphan. It was used as starting reagent during the synthesis of 6-Nor-9,10-dihydrolysergic acid methyl ester.

Reagent for the protection of OH groups as their trichloroethyl (Troc) carbonates, specifically cleaved by reduction with zinc: Tetrahedron Lett., 2555 (1967). For a systematic study of the protection of amines as their Troc-carbamates, see: Synthesis, 268 (1981).
Preferred to ethyl chloroformate for the N-demethylation of tert-amines, since the resulting carbamate can be cleaved by reductive elimination: Tetrahedron Lett., 1325 (1974); Synth. Commun., 7, 79 (1977).
Effective reagent for dehydration of primary amides to nitriles: Synth. Commun., 30, 3047 (2000).
