Methane Sulfonyl Chloride finds application in Pharmaceutical & Agrochemical synthesis.
It also finds application and Dyes Manufacturing.
The main use of Methanesulfonyl chloride is the formation of Methanesulfonates from alcohols in the presence of a non-nucleophilic base. Methanesulfonates are used as intermediates in substitution reactions, elimination reactions, reductions, and rearrangement reactions.
When treated with a Lewis acid, oxime methanesulfonates will undergo a facile Beckmann rearrangement.
