Trimethylacetic acid is also known as neovaleric acid, tert valeric acid or TERT valeric acid. Trimethylacetic acid is an intermediate for the production of carbamate insecticide fenpropargyl and herbicide clomazone. Tert butyl peroxide, an initiator prepared from trimethylacetic acid, is a highly efficient initiator for polymerization of vinyl chloride, vinyl acetate, styrene and acrylate.
It is widely used to introduce tert butyl functional groups into molecules, and can be used as perfume, liquid adhesive, lubricant, humidifier and primary raw materials. It can also be used as raw material for the treatment of arthritis, tuberculosis and psoriasis. It is the key raw material for the production of ampicillin and cefazolin antibiotics trimethylacetyl chloride.
