Abstract

The ring-expansion reactions of heterocyclic ketoximes and carbocyclic ketoximes with several reductants such as AlHCl2, AlH3 (alane), LiAlH4, LiAlH(OtBu)3, and (MeOCH2CH2O)2AlH2Na (Red-Al) were examined. Among reductants, AlHCl2 (LiAlH4:AlCl3 = 1:3) in cyclopentyl methyl ether (CPME) has been found to be a suitable reagent for the reaction, and the rearranged cyclic secondary amines were obtained in good to excellent yields.
Keywords: aluminum reductant; dichloroaluminum hydride (AlHCl2); ring-expansion of oxime; rearrangement of oxime; cyclopentyl methyl ether (CPME) aluminum reductant; dichloroaluminum hydride (AlHCl2); ring-expansion of oxime; rearrangement of oxime; cyclopentyl methyl ether (CPME)
