Reaction of isopropylphenyl- and isopropyl-2-thienylketoximes with acetylene, catalyzed by the system MOH (M=Na, K)-DMSO, gave 2-phenyl- and 2-(2-thienyl)-3,3-dimethyl-3H-pyrroles as well as the reaction intermediates O-vinylisopropylphenylketoxime and 2-phenyl-3,3-dimethyl-5-hydroxypyrroline. The yield of the condensation products depends on the structure of the ketoximes and the conditions for the reaction with acetylene.
