The First Aminimide Synthesis from Benzoyl Azide and Pyridine
MetadataShow full item record
Irradiation of benzoyl azide 1 at 254 nm in the presence of some amines produces aminimides: in the presence of pyridine the aminimide 13 can be isolated in 41% yield; in the presence of N,N-dimethylaniline a CH insertion product 7 is obtained via an intermediate aminimide 12. This is the first reported synthesis of aminimides from a benzoyl azide.
