Ultrasound promoted deoximation by FeCl3: A highly efficient, mild and expeditious approach


IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 C 251/32

The deoximation of aldoximes and ketoximes to afford corresponding aldehydes and ketones by anhyd. FeCl3 in dry CH3CN under ultrasound irradiation at 40 KHz has been reported.

Glucosylation of 4˘-hydroxychalcones using glu­co­syl donor


IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 H 19/00

Condensation of α-acetobromoglucose with 4˘-hydro­xy­arylmethyleneacetophenone derivatives (chalcones) in anhydrous acetone furnishes 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-acetyl-4˘-O-β-d-glucopyranosyloxychalcones 3a-i. Deblocking of the latter with CH3ONa in dry methanol affords 4˘-O-β-d-glucopyranosyloxychalcones 4a-i.
