AEW 3-5 (crude recovered from AEW 28-1, 173 mg) was dissolved in DMF (5 mL) at 0˚C and NaH (60% dispersed in mineral oil, 44 mg, 1.1 mmol, 1.2 equiv.) was added and the reaction mixture stirred at 0 ˚C for 30 minutes. Bromoacetonitrile (73 microlitres, 1.1 mmol, 1.2 equiv.) was added at 0 ˚C and the reaction mixture stirred for 5 minutes prior to the removal of the ice bath. After 2 hours, no reaction observed. After 5 hours, the reaction mixture turned black suggesting decomposition.
