This paper presents some recent work to re-investigate the Ponzio reaction for the conversion of oximes to the gem-dinitro group. The Ponzio reaction is one of a number of less aggressive non-acidic methods used to nitrate aliphatic compounds, which are usually destroyed in the mixtures of nitric and sulphuric acids commonly used to nitrate aromatic compounds. The effect of varying the Ponzio reaction solvent, and of changing the nitrating species from N2O4 to N2O5 will also be presented. The reaction mechanism will be discussed with reference to N-15 CIDNP nmr studies. Where relevant the results will be compared with other aliphatic nitration methods.
