Reinvestigation of the reaction of nicotinic acid 1-oxide (1) with boiling acetic anhydride has revealed that the primary product is not 2-acetylnicotinic acid 1-oxide (3) but 3- acetoxy-4-aza-3-methyl-1(3H)-isobenzofuranone 4-oxide (2), the acetate of the ring tautomer of 3. Reactions of 2 and 3 with phosphorus trichloride and some related reactions are reported.
