Tris(3,6-dioxaheptyl)amine acts as a phase transfer catalyst used in the preparation of 1,3-dideaza-2′-deoxyadenosine and related benzimidazole 2′-deoxyribonucleosides. It is also used as an intermediate in the synthesis of telithromycin. Further, it is used in the oxidation of arylmethanols under phase-transfer conditions. In addition to this, it acts as a cryptand during phase-transfer glycosylation of 2-amino-4-methoxy-7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine.
