N- (arylsulfonyl)-p-aminobenzoate ester 4 subsequent reactions. Gentle alkaline hydrolysis of the N- (3,3-dialkoxy-2-ketopropyl) -N- (arylsulfonyD-p-aminobenzoate compounds which are esters leads to the formation of the corresponding acids. The hydrolysis can be effected by mixing the ester with an aqueous or alcoholic alkali. Upon acidifying the cold aqueous reaction mixture, the acid is precipitated in the form of a solid or oily material which is generally somewhat yellowish in color. The solid compounds can be purified, if desired, by recrystallization from alcohol.

Certain of the N-(arylsulfonyl)-p-aminobenzoate esters (II) are described and claimed in co-pending application Serial-No. 41,888, filed 1 oxidation (Ci-Oz) N-(3,3-dlalkoxy-2-ketopropyl)-N-Karylsullonyl)-p-aminobenzoate compound The process of the invention, as illustrated in the accompanying reaction chart wherein the formulae of the compounds given are numbered to correspond with the following description and wherein n and B have the values given previously, comprises the step of oxidizing an N-(3,3- dialkoxy-2-hydroxypropyl) -N-(arylsulfonyl) paminobenzoate compound (III) to form an N- (3,3-dialkoxy-2-ketopropyl) N (arylsulfonyl) p-aminobenzoate compound (IV). The oxidation can be carried out conveniently using chromic oxide, although any other suitable oxidizing agent can be employed. Either the hydroxy acetal acids or their alkyl esters can be oxidized to the corresponding keto acetal acids or esters. Both the hydroxy acetal esters and the keto acetal esters can be hydrolyzed readily to the corresponding hydroxy acetal acids and keto acetal acids.

The oxidation of an N-(3,3-dialkoxy-2-hydroxypropyl) -N-(arylsulfonyl) -p-aminobenzoate compound to an N-(3,3-dialkoxy-Z-ketopropyl)- N-(arylsulfonic) -p-aminobenzoate compound can becarriedout conveniently by dissolving the hydroxy compound and chromic anhydride in glacial acetic acid and agitating the mixture for several hours, 'e. g. at room temperature. The reaction mixture then generally consists of a mixture of liquid and solid substances from which the keto compound can be recovered in any convenient manner. If desired, the mixture can be agitated thoroughly with ether and filtered or it can be diluted with water andthen extracted with benzene or ethyl acetate. In either case, the organic layer or solution can be washed free of acid and inorganic salts with Water, dried with sodium sulfate or other suitable agent and the solvent then distilled in vacuo to leave the N-(3,3-dialkoxy-Z-ketopropyl) -N-(arylsulf0nyl) -p aminobenzoate compound, generally as a yellowish sirupy residue.

In some instances, the product can be obtained in partially crystalline form upon allowing the oily product to stand. The crude product can, however, be used without further purification in July 31, 1948. They can be prepared readily, as described in the co-pending application just mentioned, by reacting an arylsulfonyl halide with an alkyl ester of p-aminobenzoic acid, of p-aminobenzoyl-glutamic acid, or of a p-aminobenzoyl-glutamyl-glutamic acid having up to 7 glutamic acid residues in the molecule.

Dialkyl acetals of 1,2-oxidopropanol which can be used in the process include the dimethyl, diethyl, di-n-propyl, di-iso-propyl, dibutyl, diamyl and other dialkyl acetals. As a matter of convenience and availability dialkyl acetals wherein the alkyl radicals each contain less than 8 carbon atoms are preferred, although others can be used, if desired. It is apparent that the nature of the alkyl groups in the 3,3-dialkyl-2- hydroxypropyl and in the 3,3-dialkyl-2-ketopropyl radicals of the compounds (III) and (IV) are determined by the particular 1,2-oxidopropanol diallzyl acetal used in the first step of the process.

Esters which can be used as starting com pounds in the process, with the production of the corresponding ester intermediates, include the methyl, ethyl, n-propyl, iso-propyl, butyl, amyl, hexyl, nonyl and other 'alkyl esters. As a matter of convenience, lower alkyl esters containing less than about" 8 carbon atoms in the alkyl radicals are preferably used in the process, although insofar as is knomrany alkyl ester can be used.

Although starting compounds containing substantially any arylsulfonyl radical can be used in the process of the invention and in the preparation of the corresponding arylsulfonyl intermediates and final products, the preferred starting materials and intermediate products are those containing the p-toluenesulfonyl radical due to the ready availability of the p-toluenesulfonyl halides and to the generally crystalline nature of the p-toluenesulfonyl' derivatives of compounds with which the present invention is concerned. The invention is, however, not limited to compounds containing the p-toluenesulfonyl radical and compounds containing other arylsulfonyl 5 ra'dieals, such as the befiz'enesulfonyl, io-tolu'ene sulfonyl, maphthalenesul'fonyl, methylnaphthalenesulfonyl radicals and others, can be used, if desired.
