Nitration of styrenes using 2-methyl-5-trinitromethyltetrazole
2-methyl-5-trinitromethyltetrazole (1) reacts with the styrenes 2A-D as a nitrating agent. The reaction of tetrazole 1 with the ethenes 2A-D in a neutral medium results in the denitration of compound 1 to give the α-nitro ketones 3A-C (from the alkenes 2A-C) or the 1-methyl-2-nitro-1-phenyl-1-ethanol 3D (from alkene 2D). In addition, the degradation products of compound 1 (the nitromethanone oxime 4 ... إقراء المزيد
