Application

4-Methylmorpholine can be used as:
  • A precursor to prepare N-methylmorpholine N-oxide and 1-butyl-1-methylmorpholinium bromide ([BMmo][Br]), a monocation ionic liquid.[1][2]
  • A reactant to synthesize quaternary ammonium complexes applicable as complexing agents in redox flow batteries.[3]
  • A basic catalyst in the synthesis of thiobenzamides via Willgerodt-Kindler′s reaction.[4]
  • An activating agent to synthesize hyaluronic acid-based biopolymer for cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and nutraceutical applications.[5]
