alpha -Nitro ketones. 6. Synthesis and conformation of 2-methyl-2-nitro-, cis- and trans-6-methyl-2-nitro-, and cis- and trans-2,6-dimethyl-2-nitrocyclohexanones.

Nitration of the most substituted (thermodynamically more stable ) enol acetate or trimethylsilyl ether of 2-methylcyclohexanone (I) and the phase-transfer methylation of 2-nitrocyclohexanone serve as methods of prepn. of 2-methyl-2-nitrocyclohexanone (II); nitration of the least substituted enol ac...
