R. Balicki et L. Kaczmarek, SYNTHESIS OF N-BENZYL-ACYLAMIDES AND N-HETEROARYLMETHYL-ACYLAMIDES BYREDUCTIVE N-ACYLATION OF ALDOXIMES WITH AMMONIUM FORMATE, Gazzetta chimica italiana, 123(9), 1993, pp. 525-526
Various (hetero)aryl aldoximes have been efficiently transformed to th
e corresponding acylamides via reductive N-acylation, catalyzed by 10%
palladium on carbon in the presence of ammonium formate as the hydrog
en source in an alkanoic acid.
