An effective route to novel maleimides is described, which involves the reaction of an enamine derived from the addition of a secondary amine to a dialkyl acetylenedicarboxylate with an arylsulfonyl isocyanate. These maleimides in solution indicate dynamic NMR because of restricted rotation around the carbon-nitrogen bond, resulting from conjugation of the side-chain nitrogen with the adjacent ?,?-unsaturated ester group. ? 2006 Elsevier Ltd.
