Applications

Oximes are used as a peel-preventing additive in paints and lacquers. It acts as an antioxidant against oxidative drying materials which forms sticky skin with air oxygen. Oximes are used as chemical building block for the synthesis of agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals. In medicine application, Oxime structure is effective in cholinesterase reactivators to treat the poisoning by organophosphates. Oxime is used as a ligand in transition-metal complex catalyst chemistry. Oxime acts as an antioxidant, radical scavenger which find applications in textile, plastic, paint, detergent, and rubber industry.

Notes

Store in cool place. Keep away from oxidizing agents. Incompatible with bases, acids, acid anhydrides and acid chlorides.

The oximate anion displaces activated aromatic nitro (or halogen) substituents. A second mole of oximate functions as base with elimination of benzonitrile and overall conversion of the nitro-compound to a phenol: J. Org. Chem., 39, 3343 (1974):

Conjugate addition of the oximate anion to ɑß-unsaturated acetylenic carbonyl compounds gives ß-dicarbonyl compounds: J. Org. Chem., 59, 1219 (1994). For example with reaction scheme, see Methyl­ phenyl­propiolate, B24587.

Aldoximes are conventionally dehydrated to nitriles with acetic anhydride; see, e.g.: Org. Synth. Coll., 2, 622 (1943). Many other dehydration methods have been described, including: Triethyl orthoformate and acid: J. Org. Chem., 39, 3424 (1974). DMF - SOCl2: Tetrahedron Lett., 25, 3365 (1984).

See also Hydroxyl­amine hydrochloride, A15398 for one-pot conversion of aldehydes to nitriles.

Chlorination followed by elimination of HCl from the benzohydroxamoyl chloride leads, in situ, to the 1,3-dipole benzonitrile oxide. See, e.g.: Org. Synth. Coll., 5, 504 (1973).
