Literature References

For examples of preparation of oximes from carbonyl compounds, see: Org. Synth. Coll., 2, 70, 313 (1955); 7, 149 (1990). Dehydration of aldoximes is a valuable route to nitriles. The preparation of an oxime, and dehydration with acetic anhydride, are exemplified for veratraldehyde: Org. Synth. Coll., 2, 622 (1943). For other methods of dehydrating oximes to nitriles, see Benzaldoxime, A12053. Procedures for the one-pot conversion of aldehydes to nitriles, without isolation of the intermediate oxime, include: refluxing the aldehyde with hydroxylamine hydrochloride in formic acid/ sodium acetate: J. Chem. Soc., 1564 (1965); formic acid alone: Synthesis, 112 (1979); in pyridine and toluene, with azeotropic water removal: Synthesis, 190 (1982); in DMF (reflux; aromatics only): Z. Chem., 15, 302 (1975); heating in NMP at 110-115o, effective for aromatic and aliphatic substrates; under these conditions, DMF gave only 20-30% conversion: Synthesis, 586 (1999). A more recent ambient temperature one-pot procedure utilizes DBU in combination with ethyl dichlorophosphate: Synlett, 1317 (2007).

For a one-pot synthesis of pyrazoles from aldehydes by cyclization of the intermediate oxime in acidic medium with potassium dihyrogen phosphate, see: Tetrahedron Lett., 47, 43 (2006).

For a brief feature on uses of this reagent in Organic synthesis, see: Synlett, 1326 (2007).
