Synthesis of hydroxylamines and related compounds


Recent Literature

Choline peroxydisulfate - an oxidizing task-specific ionic liquid - enables the preparation of N,N-disubstituted hydroxylamines from secondary amines. This method offers operational simplicity, high selectivity, and green reaction conditions.

A copper-catalyzed electrophilic amination of simple and functionalized aryl, heteroaryl-, benzyl, n-alkyl, sec-alkyl, and tert-alkyl diorganozinc nucleophiles with R2NOC(O)Ph and RHNOC(O)Ph reagents as electrophilic nitrogen sources provides tertiary and secondary amines, respectively, in generally good yields.

A hypervalent iodine mediated reaction between carboxylic acids and N,N-dimethylformamide occurs under mild conditions at room temperature to provide O-aroyl-N,N-dimethylhydroxylamines in good yields, which are important electrophilic amination reagents. The process shows good functional group compatibility and air and moisture tolerance.
