The first reaction of Dimethoxycarbene with an imine moiety

Abstract

The nucleophilic dimethoxycarbene (DMC; 2) generated by thermal decomposition of 2,5-dihydro-1,3,4-oxadiazole derivative 1 in boiling toluene reacts smoothly with N-(9H-fluoren-9-ylidene)-4-methylbenzenesulfonamide (7b) to yield carbonimidoate derivative 10. A multi-step reaction pathway, initiated by the attack of DMC onto the C=N bond and followed by the migration of the sulfonyl group (or via a sulfinate anion) is proposed to explain the formation of the final product. In contrast to the formal ketimine 7b, N-benzylidene-4-methylbenzenesulfonamide (7a), a formal aldimine, does not react with DMC under comparable conditions.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
