Ethyl formate is used as a solvent for cellulose nitrate, cellulose acetate, greases and oils. It is also used as a flavor for lemonade and essences. It is involved in the fumigation of dried fruits, as an alternative to methyl bromide.
Many illustrations of use in formylation of carbanions are given in Organic Syntheses: For more recent examples, see: Org. Synth. Coll., 6, 590, Note 1 (1988); Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 180 (Note 4), 239, 548 (1998).
ɑ-Formylation of the dilithio derivatives of carboxylic acids, followed by facile decarboxylation, provides an indirect conversion to the corresponding aldehydes: Tetrahedron Lett., 699 (1970); 603 (1974).
Amines readily give N-formyl derivatives, more easily cleaved by hydrolysis than N-acetyl: Can. J. Chem., 60, 3055 (1982); for an example (L-valinol), see: Org. Synth. Coll., 8, 204 (1993).
