Nucleophilic cationization reagents fitted with aminooxy groups are described. Practical syntheses of mono- and bis-aminooxy tetraalkylammonium iodides including N-hydroxyethyl-functionalized analogs are reported. An oximation example using one of the reagents is presented to illustrate their use in synthesis of cationic materials.
