Methanesulfonyl chloride is used as a reagent for conversion of alcohols to mesylate esters such as methanesulfonate, which is an intermediate in substitution reactions, elimination reactions, reductions, and rearrangement reactions viz. Beckmann rearrangement. It is an electrophile and acts as a source of CH<sub>3</sub>SO<sub>2</sub><Sup>+</sup> group. It is also used to prepare beta-chloro sulfones, methanesulfonamide and heterocyclic compounds containing five membered sultones.


Moisture sensitive. Store in a cool place. Incompatible with strong bases, oxidizing agents and alcohols. It is a lachrymator and reacts with water.

Reagent for conversion of alcohols to their mesylate esters. For mesylation of an acetylenic alcohol followed by displacement with an amine, see Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 46 (1998). In the presence of triethylamine, reaction occurs by way of the sulfene intermediate, which mesylates alcohols of low nucleophilicity including tert-alcohols and 2,2,2-trifluoroethanol: J. Org. Chem., 35, 3195 (1970).

In pyridine, primary alcohols are converted to alkyl chlorides, via nucleophilic displacement by Cl- on the mesylate: Chem. Pharm. Bull., 24, 365 (1976); J. Org. Chem., 48, 657 (1983). In combination with LiCl in collidine, allylic alcohols are converted to chlorides without allylic rearrangement: J. Org. Chem., 36, 3044 (1971).

For use in the symmetrical coupling of aryl mesylates to give biaryls, catalyzed by Dichlorobis(triphenyl­phosphine)­nickel(II)­, 13930, see: J. Org. Chem., 60, 6895 (1995).

Esters of hindered acids have been prepared via the mesyl mixed anhydride and reaction with the alcohol in the presence of DMAP: Synth. Commun., 12, 727 (1982).
