Abstract
A novel transformation of primary amines to the corresponding N-monoalkylhy droxylamines is described. The three-step protocol involves selective mono- cyanomethylation of primary amines, regioselective formation of nitrones by m-CPBA oxidation, and hydroxylaminolysis of the nitrones with hydroxylamin e hydrochloride. The method is applicable for a wide range of primary amine s, including alkyl, benzyl, and chiral.
