Introduction

N-Tosyl imines are versatile synthetic intermediates in organic synthesis. [1] These are activated imines where the limitations of aldimine functionality such as low electrophilicity of azomethine carbon and the tendency of enolizable imines to undergo deprotonation rather than addition can be circumvated. [2] [3] They are used in olefination reactions and various C-C bond forming reactions.
