WE have extended our investigations1 on the acyl migration reaction N6666666 O to acyl derivatives of diastereoisomeric alicyclic amino-alcohols2, such as 2-amino-cyclohexanol3, with the view of establishing the relative steric positions4 (that is, configuration) of hydroxyl and acylamido groups.

Raiford, L., and Mortensen, F., could not initiate acyl migration of bis-acylated 2-amino-cyclohexanol (J. Amer. Chiem. Soc., 50, 1201; 1928).
Attempts to convert amino-cyclohexanol into 1.2-cyclohexandiol of known configuration were unsuccessful: Wilson, N. A. B., and Read, J., J. Chem. Soc., 1270 (1935).

McCasland, G. E., et al., J. Amer. Chem. Soc., 71, 638 (1949), found that benzamido-cyclohexanol, m.p. 189°, can be prepared from its diastereoisomer by tosylation and subsequent detosylation in an analogous manner to the preparation of cis-acetyl-cyclohexandiol-1.2 from the trans form. cf. Winstein, S., et al., J. Amer. Chem. Soc., 64, 2796 (1942).

Incomplete acyl migration was recorded in the case of bis-acyl-2-amino-phenol, leading to an equilibrium mixture, cf. le Rosen, A. L., et al., J. Amer. Chem. Soc., 70, 2705 (1948).
