Baxter, Nicholas J., Laws, Andrew P., Rigoreau, Laurent J. H. and Page, Michael I. (1999) General acid catalysed hydrolysis of β-sultams involves nucleophilic catalysis. Chemical Communications (23). pp. 2401-2402. ISSN 1359-7345

The hydrolysis of the four-membered ring sulfonamide N-benzyl -sultam is catalysed by carboxylic acids, which is attributed to specific acid–nucleophilic catalysis with the intermediate formation of a mixed anhydride which can be trapped with aniline.
