Preparation of Dimethylpropyleneurea: It can be obtained by tetrahydro-pyrimidin-2-one and sulfuric acid dimethyl ester. This reaction needs reagents K2CO3, TEBA and solvent dioxane at temperature of 60 °C. The reaction time is 5 hours. The yield is 78.8%.

Dimethylpropyleneurea can be obtained by tetrahydro-pyrimidin-2-one and sulfuric acid dimethyl ester

Uses of Dimethylpropyleneurea: It is a cyclic urea sometimes used as a polar, aprotic organic solvent. And it can react with trifluoro-methanesulfonic acid anhydride to get 2,2'-oxy-bis(1,3-dimethyl-tetrahydropyrimidinium) bis(trifluoromethanesulfonate). This reaction needs solvent CH2Cl2 by heating. The reaction time is 48 hours. The yield is 50%.
