Direct chemical method for preparing 2,3-epoxyamides using sodium chlorite.

Abstract

A direct method for preparing 2,3-epoxyamides from tertiary allylamines via a tandem C-H oxidation/double bond epoxidation using sodium chlorite is reported. Apparently, the reaction course consists of two steps: (i) allylic oxidation of the starting allylamine to corresponding unsaturated allylamide with sodium chlorite followed by (ii) epoxidation of the… (More)
