Aryl(sulfonyl)amino Group: A Convenient and Stable Yet Activated Modification of Amino Group for Its Intramolecular Displacement

Aryl(sulfonyl)amino groups, readily derived from sulfonyl- or arylamines by standard methods as well as the recently introduced methods of sulfonylation and arylation, proved to be good leaving groups in intramolecular substitution reactions by various nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon nucleophiles.
