Nitriles are important reagents for organic synthesis that have been known to chemists for a long time[1].These compounds synthesis by means of dehydration of amides or aldoximes with a appropriate dehydrating agent would be alternative method[2].
According to the literatures there are several methods of preparation nitriles by treating aldoximes with a variety of dehydrating agents such as rare earth metal ion exchanged (La3+, Ce3+, RE3+) KFAU-Y zeolitestrifluoroacetic[3],anhydride/triethylamine[4], benzenesulphenyl chloride[5], chlorosulphonyl isocyanate[6], iodotriethoxyphosphorane[7], spin-labeled phophoryl imidazolides[8], diphosphorus tetraiodide[9], selenium dioxide[10], triethylamine/sulphur dioxide complex[11], sulphuryl chloride fluoride[12] and the thermal decomposition of oxime carbonates at 110 oC[13], Ionic liquid-promoted dehydration of aldoximes[14], Cobalt(II) catalyzed[15].
The Mining Chemicals Technology business of Cognis has developed what it claims is the only full range of SX reagent technology: Ketoximes, Aldoximes, non-modified Ketoxime/Aldoxime blends, and fully/slightly modified blends with alcohols and esters.
