May be oxidized with lead(IV) acetate to "phthalimidonitrene", which adds to alkenes to give aziridines. The phthalimido group can be cleaved with hydrazine hydrate: J. Chem. Soc. (C), 576 (1970); J. Am. Chem. Soc., 92, 1784 (1970); Helv. Chim. Acta, 55, 1276 (1972); Org. Synth. Coll., 6, 56 (1988). Addition to cyclopentadienes leads to substituted pyridines after ring-opening with base: Heterocycles, 22, 1369 (1984). Addition to the (racemic) acrylic ester below shows an extremely high facial selectivity, adding to the less hindered side (290:1): Helv. Chim. Acta, 72, 1095 (1989).
Aziridination has also been achieved in high yield by electrochemical oxidation: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 124, 530 (2002).
