Divinyl sulfone acts as a cross-linking reagent for agarose gels. It is a monomer, which is used in the production of polymers with diols, urea and malonic esters. Further, it serves as a shrinkage control agent in textiles. In addition to this, it is used in the preparation of large class of fiber-reactive dyestuffs.

In the presence of thiazolium salt catalysts (see 3-Benzyl-5-(2-hydroxyethyl)-4-methylthiazolium chloride, L08750), the Stetter reaction with aldehydes gives 1,4-diketones by loss of SO2 from the intermediate dialkyl sulfone: Chem.
