2,3,5-Trimethylisoxazolium salts with electron-withdrawing groups at C-4 react with aromatic aldehydes to give 3- and/ or 5-arylidene derivatives resulting from the condensation at CH3 and/or CH3-5. The differential reactivity of 3- and 5-methyl groups is markedly influenced by the nature of the substituent at C-4 and varies in the same order as its kinetic acidity which was estimated from studies on deuteriodeprotonation. The influence of inductive, resonance and steric effects due to the 4-substituents on the course of the reaction is shown.
