    Description

    Applications
    Ethyl potassium malonate is used as a competitive inhibitor of the enzyme succinate dehydrogenase. It acts as a precursor to produce (trimethylsilyl)ethyl malonate, which is utilized to prepare beta-ketoesters by acylation. Further, it reacts with aryl nitriles to prepare beta-amino acrylates in the presence of zinc chloride and a catalytic amount of Hünig ft.s base. In addition to this, it serves as an intermediate for the preparation of ethyl tert-butyl malonate.

    Solubility
    Soluble in water.

    Notes
    Hygroscopic. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
