I am having trouble coming up with conditions to give me the best yield of the product I want.
I have cyclohexamine with two ester groups in the para position and CONH2 ortho and I want to convert the amine group to the hydroxyl.
Literature has been using bases at high temperatures, but i think this will just break my esters apart. Others use NaNO3 with weak acid, but they were aiming for a product where both esters were cleaved, and I want them to remain...
I was thinking of a Schiemann type reaction, but not sure if the esters will be affected by the halogen.
Any suggestions for conditions or methods would be greatly appreciated!
