General description

3,4-Dimethoxy-3-cyclobutene-1,2-dione (Dimethyl squarate) is a cyclobutene derivative. It reacts with hydroxylamine derivatives to afford 3-hydroxyamino-4-methoxy-3-cyclobutene-1,2-diones.

Application

3,4-Dimethoxy-3-cyclobutene-1,2-dione (Dimethyl squarate) may be used in the synthesis of the following compounds:
  • chiral squaramides, highly enantioselective catalyst for the Friedel-Crafts reactions of indoles
  • 3-(hydroxyamino)-4-methoxy-3-cyclobutene-1,2-dione
  • squarate derivatives of the O-SP-core antigens
  • methyl squarate derivative of the Ogawa O-SP-core antigen
  • o-quinodimethanes
  • benzocyclobutenes
  • quinones
