Chloromethyl methyl sulfide is used as a methylene transfer reagent for iron(II) mediated cyclopropanation and for carbonyl and aromatic compounds. It protects alcohols as their methylthiomethyl (MTM) ethers by reaction, e.g. with NaH/NaI in DME. It is also used for the preparation of MTM esters of carboxylic acids, e.g. by treatment of the K salt of the acid in the presence of NaI and 18-crown-6 and for reaction with cyclopentadienyl iron dicarbonyl dimer in the formation of an iron-containing methylene transfer agent.

Protects alcohols as their methylthiomethyl (MTM) ethers by reaction, e.g. with NaH/NaI in DME: Tetrahedron Lett., 3269 (1975), or with AgNO3/Et3N: Chem. Lett., 1277 (1979). MTM ethers are relatively stable to acid but can be cleaved selectively with HgCl2 in aqueous acetonitrile or AgNO3/ 2,6-lutidine: Tetrahedron Lett., 3269 (1975), by methylation (MeI) and hydrolysis: Austral. J. Chem., 31, 1031 (1978); Chem. Lett., 715 (1984), or with TMS chloride and Ac2O: Chem. Ind. (London), 223 (1984). For protection of phenols, see: Tetrahedron Lett., 533 (1977); 24, 1189 (1984).
Can also be used for the preparation of MTM esters of carboxylic acids, e.g. by treatment of the K salt of the acid in the presence of NaI and 18-crown-6: Tetrahedron Lett., 731 (1978) which also describes cleavage with HgCl2. The ester can also be cleaved with TFA: J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 224 (1973); or by methylation-hydrolysis: Tetrahedron Lett., 689 (1979).
For reaction with cyclopentadienyl iron dicarbonyl dimer in the formation of an iron-containing methylene transfer agent, see: Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 372 (1998).
