The reactions between different N,O-bis-trimethylsilyl-carbamates and oxo compounds were studied. The N,O-bis-trimethylsilyl-N-methoxy-carbamate converts ketones to the corresponding O-methyl oximes. The product is usually a mixture of syn and anti isomers. If the carbonyl compound bears a hydroxyl group, the oxime formation and the O-silylation take place simultaneously. In the case of -haloketones, the undesired substitution of halogen was not observed. The reactions between N,O-bis-trimethylsilyl-N-methyl-carbamate and oxo compounds resulted in the corresponding imines, although the yield are moderate in some cases. Analoguos reaction of ferrocenylated oxo derivatives gave similar results.
