Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Symmetrical aryl imides are synthesized from the reaction of activated amides such as N-phenyl-N-tosyl benzamides. The amine source is provided by lithium hexamethyldisilazide (LiHMDS), and a 1,3-diketone mediates the generation of the N-acyl donor from N,N-bis(trimethylsilyl)amide. Various symmetrical aryl amides are thus formed in moderate to good yields.
