tert-Butyl isocyanide is used in a tin-free procedure for alkyl radical reactions in the presence of a free-radical initiator. It is a useful intermediate in multicomponent reactions. It is also used in the synthesis of coumarines, 4H-chromenes, isoxazolines and to trap 2-cyclopropylidene-1,3-diones.

In the presence of a free-radical initiator, can be used in a tin-free procedure for alkyl radical reactions: Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 43, 3598 (2004).
Useful intermediate in multicomponent reactions. For example, forms a reactive 1 : 1 adduct with acetylenic esters, e.g. Dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate, A11437, which can be trapped with strong C-H acids, such as 4-Hydroxy-6-methyl-2-pyrone, L11457:
