A simple method for the α-oxygenation of aldehydes

Abstract

A mild, efficient and general method for the chemospecific α-oxygenation of aldehydes is described. Treatment of a series of aldehydes with N-tert-butyl-O-benzoyl hydroxylamine hydrochloride gives the corresponding α-oxygenated carbonyl via a proposed pericyclic rearrangement process.
