3-Bromo-2-isoxazolines were converted to the corresponding β-hydroxy nitriles by treatment with sodium iodide in the presence of either chlorotrimethylsilane or para-toluenesulfonic acid. Both methods gave β-hydroxy nitriles under relatively mild conditions in good to moderate yields for a variety of substituted 3-bromo-2-isoxazolines.
