Versatile access to benzhydryl-phenylureas through an unexpected rearrangement during microwave-enhanced synthesis of hydantoins.


PMID 14507182

Abstract

[reaction: see text] A new access to benzhydryl-phenylureas is described. These new interesting urea derivatives were obtained by reaction of substituted benzils with substituted phenylureas under microwave irradiation. Phenylthiourea, when reacted with benzil, gave 3-phenyl-thiohydantoin. Moreover, benzylurea, as phenethylurea, gave the corresponding 3-substituted hydantoin derivatives, demonstrating that only phenylurea derivatives can result in benzhydryl-phenylureas under the applied conditions. This new reaction proved to be an easy access to substituted 1-benzhydryl-3-phenyl-ureas.
