Methyl nitroacetate is used in the synthesis of aromatic and heteroaromatic linear (E)-alfa-nitro-arylpentenoates. It is also used to prepare phenyliodonium ylide. Further, it is utilized in the highly enantioselective and diastereoselective copper(I)-catalyzed cyclopropanation of alkenes. In addition to this, it is employed in the production of methyl (Z)-2-nitro-3-(4-nitrophenyl)-2-propenoate through reaction with 4-nitrobenzylideneaniline.
