For these conversion [(Me).sub.3]SiCl/DMSO was examined and it was found that this reagent react with various aromatic and aliphatic aldoximes in the free solvent conditions to give the corresponding nitrites in one step and in a good yield.
Adopting the above method, various oximes have been converted to the nitriles and it was found that this reaction is a novel, easy and convenient method for dehydration of both alkyl and aryl aldoximes using commercially available starting materials.
The modified aldoxime was subsequently replaced by an unmodified aldoxime-ketoxime mixture with favorable results.
Today, the major manufacturers produce a range of second-generation extractants based on aldoximes that show far superior performance.
