A novel synthesis of aromatic aldehyde from arylmethyl azides has been explored via base-mediated N2-extrusion and hydrolyzation.The effects of bases,hydrolysis conditions and the amount of base used on the reaction were also investigated.Benzaldehyde was isolated in the best yield of 83%,when the reaction was carried in N,N-dimethylformamide(DMF) and catalyzed by t-BuOK.Meanwhile,a variety of azides were investigated,and it was found that substituted benzyl azides could give the corresponding aromatic aldehydes in the yield of 38%~87%.The reaction of heteoaryl methyl azides was less efficient.According to the controlling experiments,the mechanism has been quitted.

Key words: arylmethyl azides, N2-extrusion, aryl aldehydes, t-BuOK
