This investigation comprises the synthesis, a description of the physical and spectroscopic properties, determination of the limits of thermal stability, and reactions with protic and aprotic nucleophiles of four new trityl-substituted α-lactams. With the exception of 3,3-dimethyl-1-tritylaziridin-2-one (4a), which is unstable at room temperature, all new compounds have been fully characterized.
