Abstract: A series of N-substituted-3,4,5,6-tetrachlorophthalimides were prepared by a novel sequential reaction of trichloroacetimidate 3 with C-nucleophiles in the presence of TMSOTf. The nucleophiles include arenes, alkenes and active methylene to give the imidomethylation product of 3,4,5,6-tetrachlorophthalimide 5, 7, 9 and 11, respectively.
Keywords: Tetrachlorophthalimide, novel α-glucosidase inhibitors, trichloroacetimidate, C-C bond formation, C-nucleophiles
