1-Methoxy-2-methyl-1-(trimethylsiloxy)propene is used in the synthesis of chiral β-lactams by reacting with (S)-alkylidene(1-arylethyl)amines in the presence of titanium tetrachloride. It acts as a catalyst or initiator in the group-transfer polymerization. It is also used as a versatile reagent in conjugate addition4 and aldol reactions.

Silyl ketene acetal. The silyl enol ether of methyl isobutyrate. Catalyst for the initiation of group transfer polymerization, for controlled polymerization of ɑß-unsaturated esters, ketones, nitriles and amides, in which the ketene acetal function is transferred along the growing polymer chain: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 105, 5706 (1983); Science, 222, 39 (1983).
In the presence of a Lewis acid e.g. TiCl4 or TMS-OTf, undergoes the Mukaiyama aldol reaction with aldehydes to give methyl ɑɑ-dimethyl-ß-hydroxy esters: Chem. Lett., 989 (1975); Synth. Commun., 13, 449 (1983). Excellent results are obtained in these reactions with lanthanide triflates, e.g. Yb(OTf)3, as catalysts: Synthesis, 371 (1993).
With imines, gives ß-amino esters or ß-lactams according to conditions: Tetrahedron Lett., 3643 (1977); Chem. Lett., 1397 (1989); Tetrahedron, 44, 4157 (1988).
Michael additions to enones, catalyzed by Yb(OTf)3, have also been reported: Tetrahedron Lett., 33, 6815 (1992).
