N,O-Dimethylhydroxylamine hydrochloride, 98%


Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Melting point
Soluble in water, dimethyl sulfoxide and methanol.


N,O-Dimethylhydroxylamine hydrochloride is used as a reagent in the preparation of 2-acyloxazoles from 2-oxazolemagnesium chloride and N-methoxy-N-methyl-3-oxo-butyramide from diketene. It is also used in amide coupling reactions to form Weinreb amides, which are useful in the Weinreb ketone synthesis. In addition, it is used in the preparation of an inhibitor of the NLS-derived BC peptides.


Hygroscopic. Store in a cool place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.

Literature References

The N-methoxy-N-methylamides (Weinreb amides) of carboxylic acids, N-protected amino acids and peptides are readily prepared from the acid chloride or mixed anhydride, or from the acid in the presence of 2-Chloro-1-methyl­pyridinium iodide, A12820 : Synth. Commun., 25, 1277 (1995); or BOP Reagent ( 1H-Benzotriazol-1-yl­oxytris(dimethyl­amino)­phosphonium hexafluorophosphate, A16140 ): J. Org. Chem., 61, 4999 (1996). The products undergo a number of useful transformations, e.g.:

Reaction with Grignard or organolithium reagents gives ketones: Tetrahedron Lett., 22, 3815 (1981). Reduction with Lithium aluminum hydride, A18116 , gives the aldehyde: Synthesis, 676 (1983). For subsequent conversion of Boc-amino acid derived aldehydes and ketones to pyrrole derivatives, see: J. Org. Chem., 61, 4999 (1996). Coupling with alkyl acetoacetates gives ß δ -diketo esters: Tetrahedron Lett., 29, 6467 (1988). For conversion to ɑ -diketones or ɑ -keto esters, see: J. Org. Chem., 54, 3913 (1989).
