Silver Oxide-Mediated Oxime Ether Synthesis

Author(s): Dimas Kubmarawa, JT. Barminas, Abdulraman OC Aliyu

A series of oxime ethers were prepared from (E, E)-cinnamaldoxime, crotonaldoxime, (syn)- benzaldoxime and p-methoxybenzaldoxime by reaction with methyl iodide, ethyl bromide and benzyl chloride with silver oxide as base and catalyst. Excellent yields of the corresponding (E, Z isomers) ethers were obtained without the formation of nitrones or the use of undesirable solvents.
