Graphical Abstract:


The non-photolytic method for generation of arylnitroso oxides based on the reduction of nitrosobenzene by triphenylphosphine was used to study the products of the reaction of transphenylnitroso oxide with trans-stilbene. N,α-Diphenylnitrone and benzaldehyde were found to be the main stable products of the reaction, the first stage of which was [3+2]-cycloaddition to form the metastable 1,2,3-dioxazolidine intermediate. The obtained products were in agreement with our previous theoretical predictions.

Keywords: Phenylnitroso oxide, [3+2]-cycloadditon to stilbene, N, α-Diphenylnitrone formation, photolytic, reduction, styrene.
