Base-stabilized nitrilium ions as convenient imine synthons.


A simple and efficient methodology is presented for the synthesis of a wide range of substituted imines. It is based on stabilizing readily available, but thermally labile, N-alkylnitrilium triflates with pyridine or DMAP to moderately air-stable adducts. These base-stabilized imine synthons react conveniently with phosphorus- and nitrogen-based… (More)
