Synthesis of 2-carboxylated aza-ring derivatives through α-monohalogenation/ring-contraction of N-sulfonyl lactams

Synthesis of 2-carboxylated aza-ring derivatives through α-monohalogenation/ring-contraction of N-sulfonyl lactams
2-Carboxylated aza-rings have been synthesized in two steps through a highly selective monohalogenation of N-sulfonylated lactams of various ring sizes (from 5- to 8-membered rings) followed by a ring contraction reaction. The selective monohalogenation of N-sulfonyl lactams has been achieved in modest to excellent yields (9 examples, 39–96%) using N-halogenosuccinimides via the in situ generation of trimethylsilyl ketene aminal derivatives. The so-obtained α-halogeno N-sulfonyl lactams were engaged in a ring opening/ring closing reaction in the presence of various alcohols or anilines under basic conditions affording 2-carboxylated aza-rings, such as azetidine, pyrrolidine or piperidine derivatives in high yields (24 examples, 61–99%).
