abstract

  • The published synthesis of phenolic diazirine was shown to result in products which were chlorinated during the hypochlorite oxidation while the desired unchlorinated product was lost during the usual work-up. A superior synthesis is described: inclusion of pyridine during the oxidation step prevents the chlorination; the desired volatile diazirine was isolated in good yield using silica gel and reverse phase high pressure liquid chromatography.
