Applications
Chloromethyl pivalate acts as an intermediate in the synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients. It is also involved in the acylation reaction with 9-(2-phosphonylmethoxyethyl)adenine. It serves as a protecting reagent used for the N-protection of amines. It is also employed in the preparation of pivaloyloxy methyl ester of ofloxacin as a prodrug. Further, it is used to prepare sulbactam pivoxil by reaction with sodium salt of sulbactam. In addition to this, it is used as a reagent during the synthesis of an isoindoline-annulated and continuous-flow organic synthesis.

Solubility
