Mercury(II) acetate is used as a reagent to prepare organomercury compounds and to remove the acetamidomethyl protecting group in organic synthesis. It is also involved in the oxymercuration reactions as well as to prepare dithiocarbonates from thiocarboantes.It finds application as a catalyst in organic synthesis, pharmaceuticals and absorption of ethylene.
The solvomercuration of alkenes by Hg(OAc)2, with demercuration by NaBH4, is a useful method for the Markovnikov hydration of alkenes; reviews: Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 17, 27 (1978); Tetrahedron, 38, 1713 (1982). See, e.g.: Org. Synth. Coll., 6, 766 (1988):
Intramolecular oxy- or amino-mercuration is a useful route to oxygen or nitrogen heterocycles: J. Heterocycl. Chem., 11, 771 (1974); 13, 349 (1976); 15, 1313 (1978):
