Trimethylacetyl chloride is used as a precursor in the preparation of tert-butyl peroxypivalate, guttiferon A derivatives, which is potential for the treatment of malaria. It is used as a raw material in the production of synthetic acidamide medicament and phenol ester medicament. In addition to this, it is used for the synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients such as aminobenzylpenicilin, cephalexin, cefazolin, dipivefrin and dipivalyl epinephrine. It is also used in heavy polymerization, N-acylating agent for amines, Schiff bases, pyrrolidinones as well as an O-acylating agent for alcohols, lactones and saccharides.


Moisture sensitive. Incompatible withalcohols, oxidizing agents and strong bases.


Reacts with sodium formate to give the mixed formic pivalic anhydride, a highly effective reagent for N-formylation: Rec. Trav. Chim., 101, 460 (1982). Similarly, has been used to form mixed anhydrides, particularly of N-protected amino acids and peptides, prior to coupling: Coll. Czech. Chem. Commun., 27, 1273 (1962). The sterically-hindered nature of the pivaloyl group greatly reduces attack at the 'wrong' carbonyl group. For peptide reagents, see Appendix 6.

Has also been used as a reagent for protection of alcohols as their pivaloyl (Pv) esters, allowing selective acylation of a primary over a secondary alcohol: Synthesis, 453 (1986); selective protection of the less hindered of two primary alcohols is possible: J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 354 (1988). See also Trimethyl­acetic anhydride, B22983. Cleavage is by room temperature basic hydrolysis: Tetrahedron Lett., 317 (1973); 3561 (1979); J. Org. Chem., 42, 918 (1977), or methanolysis: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 112, 3693 (1990), or a number of other methods, including aqueous methylamine: Tetrahedron, 24, 639 (1968).

In the presence of Cu(I) halides, reacts with Grignard and organolithium reagents to give t-butyl ketones: Tetrahedron Lett., 829 (1971).

Activates heteroaromatic amines to ring-lithiation. For example: Synthesis, 670 (1986):
