Synthesis of resorcinol derived spironitronates.


Syntheses of several unique spironitronates are reported. The key transformation involves the first known example of an ipso oxidative cyclization of nitro functionality. Oxidation proceeds from both o- and p-phenols. Reductions of these compounds provide novel spiroisoxazoline derivatives.
