The Transposing of Isomer Yields in the Methanolyses of N-Substituted Quinolinimides by Triethylamine
The effect of triethylamine in transposing the respective yields of the two isomeric esters ensuing from the methanolysis of N-substituted quinolinimides is described and is rationalized with a mechanism.
Keywords: N-Substituted quinolinimides, methyl 2-carbamoyl-3-pyridinecarboxylates, methyl 3-carbamoyl-2-pyridinecarboxylates, benzenesulfonamide derivatives, triethylamine-induced rearrangements, reaction mechanisms
