Differently substituted glutarimides, 3-methylglutarimide (12), 3,3-dimethylglutarimide (14) and 3,3,4,4-tetramethylglutarimide (18) were prepared and their reactivity towards aryllithiums was investigated. The influence of Thorpe-Ingold effect on the distribution of products in tautomeric equilibrium was observed together with a total regioselectivity of the process. For imide (12) only keto amide (13) was isolated. Imide (14) resulted in formation both hydroxy lactam (16) and keto amide (15), and imide (18) gave only hydroxy lactam (24).
