(Chemical Equation Presented) We report the discovery of the first double-barreled thermal rearrangement of a sulfonynamide and a methoxybenzyl to a nitrite and the first rearrangement of an SO2 group from sulfonamide to ketoimine. The rearrangement occurs under surprisingly mild conditions (onset at 100°C in the melt).
