O-(Alkoxycarbonyl)-N-arylhydroxylamines were efficiently converted to 2-aminophenol derivatives by cationic cobalt catalysts at 30 °C. The results of 18O-labeling experiments suggested that rearrangement of the alkoxycarbonyl group from the aniline nitrogen to the ortho position proceeded in an unprecedented [1,3] manner.
