In this study, several N-(p-substituted-arylsulfonyl)phthalimides (1a-e) were synthesized. The synthesized compounds were then examined with respect to their substitution reactions with t-butylamine, diethylamine, cyclohexylamine, and trans-1,2-diaminocyclohexane in acetonitrile. In order to determine the mechanism, substituent effect, activation entropy, and nucleophile effect were used as criteria.
