Abstract

The grinding-induced reactions of 2-aminobenzyl alcohol and benzaldehyde derivatives in the presence of 30 mol% of acetic acid to give 3,1-benzoxazines are described. The reactions were performed at room temperature affording 3,1-benzoxazines in yields above 95% and high purity when benzaldehyde and its chloro and nitro derivatives were used.
