Methylmagnesium chloride is an organometallic compound with the general formula CH3MgCl. This highly flammable and moisture sensitive material is the simplest Grignard reagent and is commercially available, usually as a solution in tetrahydrofuran. Like methyllithium, it is the synthetic equivalent to the methyl carbanion synthon.
