Abstract: Ortho‐sulfonyl anilines are important building blocks for a range of applications. We report the discovery of an aromatic rearrangement reaction of O‐(arenesulfonyl)hydroxylamines which leads directly to ortho‐sulfonyl anilines through formation of a new C−N bond with excellent levels of regiocontrol for the ortho position(s) over all others. We establish that the rearrangement is proceeding through an intermolecular mechanism and propose that the regiocontrol observed is the result of attractive non‐covalent interactions occurring during the C−N bond‐forming step. Importantly, this method is complementary to classical aniline sulfonation in terms of the variously substituted regioisomers that can be obtained and it is also applicable to O‐(benzylsulfonyl) hydroxylamines.
