An elimination reaction leading to iminos was reported in 1926, by Holmes and Ingold, who isolated benzylidene methylamine (II) after fusing the sulphonamide (I) with moist potassium hydroxide. One became interested in the reaction as a means of introducing carbon-nitrogen double bonds into heterocyclic rings. A study of the literature suggested that a successful elimination reaction leading to anils would require mild basic conditions, and the presence of electron-withdrawing groups on the carbon atom adjacent to the nitrogen atom. A preliminary investigation proved the validity of this forecast.
