Transformations of the imidazole ring in 1-alkyl and 1-aryl-4-nitroimidazoles following the attack of hydroxylamine or 4-amino-1,2,4-triazole

  • Jerzy Suwinski

Novel imidazole-oxadiazole ring interconversions (transformations) accompanying nucleophilic amination of 4-nitroimidazoles by hydroxylamine or 4-amino-1, 2, 4-triazole are described with suggestions concerning mechanisms of the reactions.
