Abstract

A study of ammonium salt-accelerated hydrazinolysis of unactivated amides is described. We first studied the reaction mechanism by kinetic experiments and DFT calculations and found that cooperation of the hydrazinium salt and hydrazine is important for promoting the cleavage of unactivated amides. Next, we applied the reaction to a microwave flow process, and the amine products were isolated on a multigram scale.
