Tolazamide is an oral blood glucose lowering drug used for people with Type 2 diabetes. It is part of the sulfonylurea family (ATC A10BB).

Synthesis[edit]

para-Toluenesulfonamide is converted to its carbamate with ethyl chloroformate in the presence of a base. Heating that intermediate with azepane leads to the displacement of the ethoxy group and the formation of tolazemide:[1]
