Applications
Used for protection of carbonyl groups as 4,4-dimethyl-1,3-dioxanes, often preferred to the more usual 1,3-dioxolanes due to easier separation and greater stability, for protection of carbonyl group of 4-bromo-2-propanone using p-toluenesulfonic acid in the presence of triethyl orthoformate. It is used in the synthesis of polyesters, paints, lubricants, and plasticizers.

Solubility
Soluble in water.

Notes
Hygroscopic. Incompatible with oxidizing agents, water/moisture.
