O-Derivatization of hydroxylamines, oximes and related compounds


Recent Literature

A direct preparation of O-substituted hydroxylamines from alcohols is described by O-alkylation of tert-butyl N-hydroxyşcarbamate with the methanesulfonates of respective alcohols, followed by acidic N-deprotection.

N-Hydroxyphthalimide and N-hydroxysuccinimide have been arylated with diaryliodonium salts to provide N-aryloxyimides in excellent yields in short reaction times. A mild and hydrazine-free hydrolysis gives aryloxyamines, which are valuable building blocks in the synthesis of oxime ethers and benzofurans.

An efficient Pd catalyst allows the O-arylation of ethyl acetohydroximate as an efficient hydroxylamine equivalent with aryl chlorides, bromides, and iodides. Short reaction times and broad substrate scope allow access to O-arylhydroxylamines that would be difficult to prepare. Moreover, the O-arylated products so formed can be directly transformed into substituted benzofurans in a single operation.

Bench stable N-Methyl-O-alkoxyformate hydroxylamine hydrochloride reagents can be prepared in two high-yielding steps from N-Boc-N-methyl hydroxylşamine. Subsequent reaction with various carbonyl compounds give the corresponding α-functionalised products in good yield via a proposed [3,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement.

The rate of the proline-catalyzed α-aminoxylation of aldehydes is significantly increased in the presence of a bifunctional urea originating from the hydrogen bonding interaction between the bifunctional urea and an oxazolidinone intermediate to increase the rate of enamine formation.

An organocatalytic β-hydroxylation of α,β-unsaturated aldehydes with commercially available (E)-benzaldehyde oxime gives the corresponding chiral carbonyl β-oxime ethers in high yields and with excellent enantioselectivities. The chiral carbonyl β-oxime ethers can be reduced to the corresponding 1,3-diols in high yields.

The oxygen atom of hydroxylamines having an N-electron-withdrawing substituent (also known as hydroxamic acids) acts as a reactive nucleophile in transition-metal-catalyzed allylic substitutions. The palladium-catalyzed O-allylic substitution of hydroxylamines with allylic carbonate afforded linear hydroxylamines, whereas branched hydroxylamines were observed in iridium-catalyzed reactions.

Treatment of alcohols with a mixture of triphenylphosphine, carbon tetrachloride, oxime, and DBU in the presence of catalytic amounts of tetrabutylammonium iodide in refluxing acetonitrile regioselectively furnishes the corresponding O-alkyl ethers in good yields.

A facile esterification of ketoximes and aldoximes in high yields can be performed using N-[3-(methylamino)propyl]-N′-ethylcarbodiimide hydrochloride (EDCI) in the presence of 4-(dimethylamino)pyridine (DMAP) as a catalyst at room temperature. The isolation and purification is very simple and for solid products, column chromatography is avoided.

A new reaction condition for Michael addition of oximes onto activated olefins has been discovered using a catalytic amount of triphenylphosphine. Various aldoximes and ketoximes were reacted with different Michael acceptors in good yields.

A copper-catalyzed cross-dehydrogenative coupling reaction between N-hydroxyphthalimide and aldehydes using PhI(OAc)2 as an oxidant enables a synthesis of NHPI esters in good yields in water. This facile and efficient method is eco-friendly and offers mild conditions, short reaction time, and broad substrate scope.
