VI. Reaction of benzoxazolinone and of benzoazolinethione with substituted α-halo carbonyl compounds

  • 36 Accesses


The alkylation of the potassium and triethylammonium salts of benzoxazolinones and benzoxazolinethiones with α-halo carbonyl compounds has been studied. The reaction takes place at the less electronegiative atoms of the ambident benzoxazolinone and benzoxazolinethione anions. On the nitration of 3-phenacylbenzoxazoline moiety of the molecule.
