Abstract

A novel base-induced rearrangement of isoxazoles into imidazole derivatives is reported. In theisoxazole series, this represents the first example of a three-atom side-chain rearrangementinvolving a CNC sequence. The reactions are carried out under nitrogen and produced2-aryl-4(5)-phenacyl-5(4)-phenyl-imidazoles in high yields. In the presence of oxygen, a cascaderearrangement-oxidation reaction sequence was observed and imidazole derivatives bearing an oxidizedside-chain were isolated.
