Application

4-(Hydroxymethyl)-1,3-dioxolan-2-one can be used as a building block to synthesize:
  • 4-[(prop-2-en-1-yloxy)methyl]-1,3-dioxolan-2-one (AGC) via Williamson ether synthesis with 3-bromoprop-1-ene.
  • Hyperbranched polyethers via copolymerization with cyclic carbonate containing phthalimide moieties.
  • (2-Oxo-1,3-dioxolan-4-yl)methyl benzeneacetate by reacting with phenylacetyl chloride.
