Electrophilic intramolecular aromatic substitution with an N-methoxy- or an N-allyloxyacylnitrenium ion, generated by treatment of an N-methoxy- or an N-allyloxy-N-chloroamide with anhydrous zinc acetate in nitromethane, leads to formation of a nitrogen heterocyclic compound bearing an N-methoxy- or N-allyloxy group. The latter is readily converted to the corresponding N-hydroxy compound by palladium-catalyzed removal of the allyl group.
