Asaad, N. and Davies, J. E. and Hodgson, D. R. W. and Kirby, A. J. and Ottavi, L. van Vliet and L. (2005) 'The search for efficient intramolecular proton transfer from carbon : the kinetically silent intramolecular general base-catalysed elimination reaction of O-phenyl 8-dimethylamino-1-naphthaldoximes.', Journal of physical organic chemistry., 18 (2). pp. 101-109.
The ready elimination of phenol/phenoxide from the O-phenyl oxime 10E derived from 8-dimethylamino-1-naphthaldehyde, necessarily involving proton transfer from carbon, is catalysed by the neighbouring NMe2 group at pH > 9. However, reaction is faster, rather than slower, at lower pH. It is shown that the step involving proton transfer is not cleanly rate determining at any pH: the preferred route involves syn/anti isomerization to form the more reactive Z-isomer. The rate constant for the anti elimination cannot be extracted from the available data, so no reliable estimate of effective molarity (EM) is possible.
