The mercuric EDTA dehydrogenation of the isomeric 1,2- and 2,1-(phenyl-pyrrolidino)-ethanols yields with two electron removal the corresponding oxazolidines. The analogous 1,2- and 2,1-(amino-phenyl)pyrrolidines by double dehydrogenation produce the amidines resp. by subsequent hydrolysis the lactams. An explanation for the different course of the reaction is given
