Abstract

Thermal high temperature and base induced low temperature de-composition of 1-sulfonamido-2, 3-dimethylaziridines (2, 3) and low temperature oxidation of 1-amino-2,3-dimethylaziridines (4) gives 2-butenes as the major hydrocarbon products (70-99%). The stereo-chemistry of the products is consistent with a stepwise pathway for decomposition of the presumed intermediate bismethylene diazenes (1).
