Burgess reagent, (methoxycarbonylsulfamoyl)triethylammonium hydroxide, usually used for the dehydration of secondary or tertiary alcohols, was successfully employed in the formation of sulfamidates from the corresponding epoxides. It was further shown that the same reaction with aromatic epoxides results in the formation of seven-membered ring systems.
