We have recently evidenced an interesting differential behavior in the reactivity in dioxane/water betweenthe (Z)-2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazone (1a) and the (Z)-phenylhydrazone (1b) of 5-amino-3-benzoyl-1,2,4-oxadiazole. The former rearranges into the relevant triazole 2a only at pS+ > 4.5 while undergoinghydrolysis at high proton concentration (pS+ < 3.5); on the contrary, the latter rearranges into 2b in thewhole pS+ range examined (0.1 e pS+ e 14.9). Thus, for a deeper understanding of these differences wehave now collected kinetic data on the rearrangement in dioxane/water of a series of 3- or 4-substituted(Z)-phenylhydrazones (1c-l) of 5-amino-3-benzoyl-1,2,4-oxadiazole in a wide range of proton concentrations(pS+ 0.1-12.3) with the aim of gaining information about the effect of the substituent on the courseof the reaction. All of the (Z)-arylhydrazones studied rearrange via three different reaction routes (specificacid-catalyzed, uncatalyzed, and general-base-catalyzed), and the relevant results have been examinedby means of free energy relationships.
