A variety of methods were used for the preparation of the 5-alkoxymethyl-, 5-alkylthiomethyl-, and 5-dialkylaminomethylisoxazoles. A novel method for the separation of the isomeric mixture of 3-(5-)methoxymethyl-5-(3-)methylisoxazoles (obtained by reaction of 1-methoxypentane-1,3-dione with hydroxylamine), based on the difference in reactivity with n-butyllithium, is described. Methods for the preparation of 5-alkylthimethylisoxazoles from the 5-methylisoxazoles; and 5-alkoxymethylisoxazoles from the 5-hydroxymethylisoxazoles are also reported.
