Isobutylene oxide is employed as an initiator for the preparation of polyisobutylenes. It finds application in the synthesis of 1-tert-butylperoxy-2-methyl-propan-2-ol.
Reductive lithiation with the radical anion formed from Li metal and 4,4'-Di-tert-butylbiphenyl, B21470 (LDBB) is exemplified for this epoxide. The intermediate ring-opened ß-lithioalkoxide reacts with an aldehyde to give a 1,3-diol: J. Org. Chem., 55, 1528 (1990); Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 306 (1998):
