Reaction of an imidazolinone N-sulfonyloxyimide (3) with ammonia or methylamine provided carboxy-ureido compounds (4, 5, 6, and 7), products of a Lossen rearrangement in which the intermediate isocyanate is trapped by the amine. Possible mechanism(s) are discussed. Upon heating, the carboxy-ureido materials eliminate urea to form the carboxy substituted imidazolones (8, 9, 10).
