The aza-Pudovik reaction accelerated in external constant magnetic field

Short Communication


The aza-Pudovik reaction of N-benzyl aromatic and aliphatic aldimines with dimethyl H-phosphonate was found to be accelerated significantly when carried out in an external magnetic field. Its conversion rates were analyzed and compared with those obtained during the aza-Pudovik reaction carried out under standard conditions. Magnetic acceleration was found to have a similar degree as in that observed in the Kabachnik–Fields reaction. However, the formation of the starting imines was found not to be susceptible to constant magnetic field–no acceleration was observed.
