Tetrahydro-4H-pyran-4-one is used in organic   synthesis as building block for more complex chemical structures because it   participate in a variety of cycloaddition reactions.   Tetrahydro-4H-pyran-4-one is employed in the preparation of   4-methoxytetrahydropyran-4-yl protecting group, synthesis of symmetric tetra   substituted methanes.
    The methyl enol ether is a useful protecting agent for alcohols, e.g. in   nucleotide synthesis, with the advantage over 3,4-Dihydro-2H-pyran.   Tetrahydro-4H-pyran-4-one is also employed in a study of the enantioselective   alpha-aminoxylation of ketones with nitrosobenzene and L-proline in an ionic   liquid. It undergoes condensation reactions in the preparation of dipeptides   and spiroimidazolones. Tetrahydro-4H-pyran-4-one is also employed in wittig   reactions for the synthesis of Penicillins and in a ring of vitamin D3.
