Abstract:N-Glyoxylamino acid ester derivatives were synthesized via the ring opening ofN-acetylisatin using moderate conditions. During the hydrazinolysis ofN-glyoxylamino acid ester derivatives with hydrazine hydrate (80%) in methanol, unexpected reduction of theα-keto group occurred to affordN-acylamino acid hydrazide derivatives in good yield (80–90%) (Wolff-Kishner type reaction). All the synthesized compounds were characterized by1H NMR,13C NMR, and elemental microanalysis.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
