Hydroxylamines are important compounds as they can be used as intermediates for a number of organic transformations; furthermore, the hydroxylamine function is widespread in biologically active molecules and natural compounds. However, the synthesis of hydroxylamines still represents a challenge for organic chemists. Recently, the group of Dr. Daniele Leonori from the University of Manchester (UK) reported a new and practical method for achieving the synthesis of the title compounds.
