Sodium methoxide has been used in the preparation of 5-(3-azidopropyl) uridine. It may be used in the synthesis of methyl 2-cyano-lup-3-hydroxy-2-en-28-oate (CN-BA), a 2-cyano derivative of betulinic acid (BA). Sodium methoxide may be used as an alkali catalyst for the production of fatty acid methyl esters (biodiesel) from vegetable oils via transesterification.
Chlorosulfuric acid is a tetrahedral molecule. The formula is more descriptively written SO2(OH)Cl, but HSO3Cl is traditional. It is an intermediate, chemically and conceptually, between sulfuryl chloride (SO2Cl2) and sulfuric acid (H2SO4). The compound is rarely obtained pure. Upon standing with excess sulfur trioxide, it decomposes to pyrosulfuryl chlorides.
