In organic synthesis, it is used as an alkylating agent and utilized for the introduction of the benzyl protecting group for alcohols. Further, it is involved in the preparation of quaternary ammonium salts by reaction with tertiary amines. In addition to this, it is used to prepare Grignard reagent by reacting with metallic magnesium.
