Several N-bis(2-chloroethyl)amides have been reduced to their corresponding nitrogen mustard derivatives employing a lithium aluminum hydride-aluminum chloride reagent. The utility of this new approach to nitrogen mustards was illustrated by synthesis of N-bis(2-chloroethyl)-3,4-methylenedioxybenzylamine (X) hydrochloride, N-bis(2-chloroethyl)-3,4,5-trimethoxybenzylamine (XI) hydrochloride and N-bis(2-chloroethyl)-3-(3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)-3-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)propylamine (VII) hydrochloride.
