Abstract: Tetrahydropyranyl protected 1,3-dihalo-2-propanol reacts with p-toluene sulfonamide in the presence of K2CO3 to give corresponding N-p-tosyl-3-azetidinol. Deprotection and oxidation with iodoxy benzoic acid followed by oximation of N-p-tosyl-3-azetidinone readily affords the corresponding azetidine oxime in almost quantitative yield. The subsequent oxidative nitrolysis of oxime gives 1,3,3-trinitroazetidine (TNAZ) through a new sequence of reactions with excellent purity ( > 99% ) and moderate yield (40% ).
