The Beckmann rearrangement is the skeletal rearrangement of aldoximes and ketoximes in the presence of certain acids, including Lewis acids, to give amides or lactams. Since the first discovery of this rearrangement by Beckmann in ,1 successive investigations have largely clarified its scope, reaction mechanism. The rearrangement of an oxime to its corresponding amide in the presence of an acid and is generally known as the Beckmann rearrangement. The oxime is also formed by the reaction of a . The acid−catalyzed conversion of ketoximes to N−substittued amides is known as Beckmann rearrangement. The reaction is catalyzed by acidic reagents like H 2SO 4, SOCl 2, SO 3, PCl 5, P 2O 5, C 6H 5SO 2Cl etc. The reaction involves the migration of . Abstract: A variety of ketoximes, easily prepared from the corresponding ketones, undergo the Beckmann rearrangement upon treatment with 2,4,6-trichloro[1,3,5]triazine in N,N-dimethylformamide at room temperature in excellent yields. This procedure can be applied Cited by:

Scope and Mechanism of a True Organocatalytic Beckmann Rearrangement with a Boronic Acid/Perfluoropinacol System under Ambient Conditions. Journal of the American Chemical Society , (15), DOI: /jacs.8bCited by: Beckmann Rearrangement An acid-induced rearrangement of oximes to give amides. This reaction is related to the Hofmann and Schmidt Reactions and the Curtius Rearrangement, in that an electropositive nitrogen is formed that initiates an alkyl migration. The Beckmann Rearrangement is a reaction of the oximes that can bring about either nitriles or amides, contingent upon the beginning material. These Oximes that obtained from the ketones develop into amides; oximes got from the aldehydes shape into nitriles. The rearrangement of a ketoxime to the corresponding amide was discovered in by E. Beckmann and is known as the Beckmann rearrangement. The rearrangement is .

Aug 25,  · I HAVE recently received my copy of Chemical Reviews for December and find in it yet one more survey of the Beckmann rearrangement and confession of failure to 'explain the mechanism' in the Cited by: 5. The Beckmann rearrangement is an organic reaction used to convert an oxime to an amide under acidic conditions. The reaction begins by protonation of the alcohol group forming a better leaving group. The R group trans to the leaving group then migrates to the nitrogen, resulting in a carbocation and the release of a water molecule. Oximes derived from ketones form amides, and oximes derived from aldehydes form nitriles. The Beckmann solution consists of acetic acid, hydrochloride acid, and acetic anhydride, and was widely used to catalyze the rearrangement. Other acids, such as sulfuric acid or polyphosphoric acid, can also be used. The Beckmann is the rearrangement of the oxime to the amide.
