3-Methyl-3-oxetanemethanol has been used in the preparation of star-shaped copolymer consisting of a hyperbranched poly(3-methyl-3-oxetanemethanol) core and polytetrahydrofuran arms, pyridyl disulfide-functionalized cyclic carbonate monomer, required for the synthesis of of functional poly(ε-caprolactone) containing pendant pyridyl disulphide groups and δ-lactams. It is used to synthesize octahydroindole alkaloids and γ-butenolides.

Reacts with nucleophiles to give 2-substituted 2-methyl-1,3-propanediols; e.g. dialkylamines, on heating under pressure at 180o, give 2-(N,N-dialkylaminomethyl)-2-methylpropane-1,3-diols, and aqueous hydrogen halides give the corresponding 2-halomethyl compounds: Liebigs Ann. Chem., 365 (1973).
Valuable protecting agent for carboxylic acids, introduced by Corey. The oxetane ester, formed from the acid chloride, rearranges with BF3 etherate to the bridged 2,6,7-trioxabicyclo[2.2.2]octane [OBO] orthoester, stable to strong bases and nucleophiles, e.g. Grignards, but readily cleaved by mild acid, followed by saponification of the ester: J.
