Abstract

The Zn/AcOH reduction of 1 leads only to the carbonyl reduction, while C-decyanation occurs in the case of 2. The mechanism of the latter reaction is discussed. The N-decyanation of N-cyanoamines 3 and 4 involves an ionic mechanism, leading to N-acyl derivatives and isocyanic acid, the latter compound being ultimately reduced to formic acid.
