To optimize and determine the reaction conditions for synthesis 2-azetidinones using microwave technique, we attempted the reaction between 2-[1-(2-Chloro-4-iodo-phenylimino)ethyl]-4-iodo-naphthalen-1-ol and monochloroacetyl chloride in presence of [Et.sub.3]N using 2-methoxyethanol. The reaction went to completion within 4.3 min and corresponding product 2g was obtained in 90% yield.

Ethanol (analytical reagent; Beijing Reagents Factory) and 2-Methoxyethanol (analytical reagent; Beijing Reagents Factory) were distilled before use.
Briefly, a HA solution was prepared by vigorously stirring a mixture of precursors, such as calcium nitrate tetrahydrate and triethyl phosphate in 2-methoxyethanol. First, calcium nitratetetrahydrate(4.0 g, 1M) and triethylphosphate (1.86 g, 0.6 M) were hydrolyzed at room temperature for 24 h in a beaker containing 2-methoxyethanol and distilled water, respectively.
Hydroxyproline was then assayed spectrophotometrically at 560 nm after reaction with 0.05 M of chloramine-T and 10% (w/v in 2-methoxyethanol) pdimethylaminobenzaldehyde.

Recently, in order to develop a Dead Sea Minerals (DSM) based drug delivery system for topical therapy of skin diseases, polymeric nanoparticles based on Poly (maleic anhydride-alt-butyl vinyl ether) 5% grafted with monomethoxy poly(ethyleneglycol) 2000 MW (PEG) and 95% grafted with 2-methoxyethanol (VAM41-PEG) loaded with DSM were prepared by means of a combined mini-emulsion/solvent evaporation process.
Lead acetate trihydrate (Pb[([O.sub.2][CCH.sub.3]).sub.2]*3[H.sub.2]O, Pb[(OAc).sub.2]), and 2-methoxyethanol were purchased from Fisher Scientific.
