Select C(alpha), O-oximes, such as 3,4-dimethoxyacetophenone or 3,4- dimethylacetophenone oxime, were dilithiated in excess LDA, followed by condensation with ethyl oxanilates to afford C-acylated intermediates that can be cyclized directly with dilute hydrochloric acid/THF, or isolated and separately acid-cyclized to 5- isoxazolecarboxamides using methanesulfonic acid and a water trap. Every compound targeted and prepared is new because of the difficulty inherent in traditional and other methods, and the synthesis represents another group of reactions where an anionic nucleophile is condensed with an anionic electrophile.
