Developing a latent cure formulation therefore involves finding a balance between the rates of nucleophile delivery, N-alkylation, and BUR dehydrobromination.
Recent work aimed at elucidating this mechanism has shown that the crosslinking process involves an initial N-alkylation reaction, followed by a deprotonation step.
The existing synthetic route [7] is based on the following sequence: construction of a monosubstituted imidazolone ring as a key compound (compound a Scheme 1, Sequence A) followed by its N-alkylation with an appropriate alkylation agent resulting in the target compound b.
