It finds its application as a convenient organic-soluble source of formaldehyde; alternative to paraformaldehyde or formalin in many reactions. e.g. chloromethylation of aromatics; e.g. polystyrene. It is also used in homolytic formylation of heterocycles, used for organic synthesis, and in fuel.

Convenient organic-soluble source of formaldehyde; alternative to Paraformaldehyde, A11313, or formalin in many reactions. e.g. chloromethylation of aromatics; e.g. polystyrene: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 112, 8187 (1990). For reviews of chloromethylation, see: Org. React., 1, 63 (1942); Russ. Chem. Rev., 46, 891 (1977). Caution! carcinogenic bis(chloromethyl) ether is formed in these reactions.
For use in combination with HBr for bromomethylation of aromatics, see: Synlett, 55 (1989).
Used in homolytic formylation of heterocycles, e.g. Lepidine, A14040: J. Org. Chem., 51, 536 (1986).
