Abstract:

Acetonylacetone reacted with HNF2 in H2SO4 to give 2,2,5,5- tetrakisdifluoraminohexane, 2,5dimethyl-2,5-bisdifluoramino tetrahydrofuran, and, apparently, a new isomer of the latter. Under similar conditions, ethyl 5- ketohexanoate gave ethyl 5,5-bisdifluoraminohexanoate. The cyclohexene adduct of HNF2 was prepared. The reaction of t-pentanol with HNF2 in H2SO4 gave a mixture of acetone and methyl ethyl ketone. The reaction of ethyl N-fluorocarbamate with n-butylnitramine in H2SO4 acid gave N-sec-butylN-fluorocarbamate. Adducts of ethyl N-fluorocarbamate with cyclohexene and cyclopentene were prepared. Nitration of methyl N-n-butylcarbamate gave N-fluoro-N-n-butylamine. The reaction of ethyl N-fluorocarbamate with sodium methoxide gave the ethyl methyl ester of iminodicarboxylic acid. Fluorination of aqueous epsilon-caprolactam gave 6-difluoraminohexanoic acid. Ethyl 6- difluoraminohexanoate was prepared. Direct fluorination of the cyclohexene N-fluorocarbamate adduct gave difluoraminocyclohexane.
