Journal Article (Journal Article)

[reaction: see text] In the course of natural product synthetic studies, 5-(4-pentenyl)oxazole and 5-(5-hexenyl)oxazole were N-methylated. The initial N-methylated 5-alkenyloxazolium salt adducts were found to be only intermediates and were ultimately transformed into hydroindole and hydroisoquinoline compounds, respectively.
