Synthesis of Tris(ɣ-oximinoalkyl)amines, New Tripodal N4 Ligands

<div><p></p><p>An original approach to the synthesis of tris(γ-oximinoalkyl)amines was proposed. The suggested synthetic sequence is based on aza-Michael addition of ammonia to methyl vinyl ketone and oximation of obtained products with hydroxylamine or <i>O</i>-alkhylhydroxylamines. The tris(γ-oximinoalkyl)amines may be considered as prospective N4 tripodal ligands.</p></div>
