Abstract: 2-(Methoxyphenylthio)benzaldehydes Xa-Xd were reacted with nitroethane in boiling acetic acid to give the corresponding 1-aryl-2-nitropropenes XIIa-XIId; benzonitriles XIIIa and XIIIc and benzaldoximes XXIc and XXId were isolated as by-products. Chromatographed compounds XIIa-XIId were reduced with lithium aluminium hydride to the primary amines VIIa-VIId, and formylated by heating with ethyl formate to the formamides XIVa, XIVc, and XIVd. Reduction of the formamides with lithium aluminium hydride afforded the…
