I was reading about Tildens Reagent when I came across this.. enter image description here

Does this happen always? Or is it when there is only a single hydrogen attached to the carbon?

  • $\begingroup$ No, this will happen when the starting material is a terminal alkene giving two hydrogens on the carbon, an aldoxime will be formed. $\endgroup$ – Waylander Mar 7 '19 at 11:20
  • $\begingroup$ So the inter conversion happens only when there is 2 hydrogens r8? $\endgroup$ – Dheeraj Kamath Mar 7 '19 at 17:03
  • $\begingroup$ And why is it unstable when hydrogen is present? $\endgroup$ – Dheeraj Kamath Mar 7 '19 at 17:32
  • $\begingroup$ The interconversion will take place whenever there is at least one hydrogen present $\endgroup$ – Waylander Mar 7 '19 at 18:24
  • $\begingroup$ But you told in the beginning that it will happen when the starting material is a terminal alkene giving 2 hydrogens? $\endgroup$ – Dheeraj Kamath Mar 7 '19 at 19:05
