Abstract

Time-resolved infrared studies of intermediates generated by photolysis of the title azide in solution at room temperature demonstrated that 3-(methoxycarbonyl)azacycloheptatetraene was the sole intermediate at least in the μs time scale, which is in sharp contrast with that observed in the photolysis in argon matrix at 10 K. Substituent effects on the reactivity of the dehydroazepine toward diethylamine are also discussed.
