It reacts with lithium dimethylcuprate to place a methyl group trans to the isopropenyl group with good stereoselectivity. It is also used as a mosquito repellent and prevent premature sprouting of potatoes. Further, it is employed as an important starting material for the synthesis of enantiopure (R)-(+)-3-methyl-6-isopropenyl-cyclohept-3-enone-1 and (4S,6R,7R)-trihydroxy-1-octyne derivatives. It is utilized as a vital raw material for the asymmetric total synthesis of natural products. In addition to this, it is used as a chiral starting material.
