Trimethyl borate is used as a solvent for paraffin, resin, petroleum, catalysts for ketones, and also in the electronics industry. Trimethyl borate is a useful reagent in organic synthesis. It is involved in the production of resins, waxes and paints and acts as a methylation agent. As a boron source, it is used to prepare flame retardants, anti-oxidants and corrosion inhibitors. It reacts with Grignard reagents followed by hydrolysis to prepare boronic acid. It is also used as a precursor of borate esters, which finds application in the Suzuki coupling reaction. It is used as neutron detector gas in the presence of a scintillation counter; as a promoter of diborane reactions.
