Application

Chloromethyl ethyl ether can be used to prepare:
  • 6-Benzyl-1-(ethoxymethyl)-5-iodopyrimidine-2,4(1H,3H)-dione, a key intermediate in the preparation of MKC-442 analog.
  • Acylation catalyst for alcohols named 1,3-bis-[(R)-1-(2-naphthyl)ethyl]imidazoliumchloride by reacting with glyoxal-bis-[(R)-1-(2-naphthyl)ethyl]imine.

The mutagenic characteristics of formaldehyde on bacteria were examined. All the tester strains of Escherichia coli deficient in DNA-repair enzymes tested in the present study were significantly more sensitive to the killing effect of formaldehyde than the corresponding wild-type strain.
