Importance of the 2-Hydroxy Group for the Reactions of an Acetate of a Naturally Occurring Prohibitin, 4-Acetoxy-2-hydroxy-2H-1,4-benzoxazin-3(4H)-one, with Nucleophiles

A prohibitin, 2,4-dihydroxy-2H-1,4-benzoxazin-3(4H)-one, reacted readily with nucleophiles after 4-O-acetylation. The 2-hydroxy group is mandatory for the reactions. The plausible interpretation for the enhancing effect of the 2-hydroxy group on the benzoxazinone system's reactivity involves an acetal ring-opening and reclosure mechanism.
