Abstract

The synthesis of diazoketones, especially for the cyclic diazoketones from α-keto oximes by the reaction with chloramines is known as the Forster reaction. The mechanism of the reaction has been presented. This reaction has been modified to generate chloramine in situ via the reaction of ammonia with sodium hypochlorite and is used to prepare diazoketones, especially for the cyclic diazoketones.
