Eswaran, SV and Neela, HY and Ramakumar, S and Viswamitra, MA (1996) The unusual formation of methyl alpha-(5,6-dimethoxycarbonyl-2,3-dimethoxyazepin-7-ylidene)-alpha-[5-methoxycarbonyl-2,3-dimethoxypyrid-6-yl)acetate during the pyrolysis of ''azido-meta-hemipinate'' - First example of a reaction involving a concomitant ring expansion and ring extrusion. In: Journal of Heterocyclic Chemistry, 33 (4). 1333-1337 .Full text not available from this repository.
he ortho methoxycarbonyl substituent constitutes a sole exception in the ring closure reactions of ortho substituted aryl azides, as it provides no rate acceleration to this reaction. Pyrolysis of ''azido-meta-hemipinate'', an aryl azide containing such a substituent, led us to the title compound, a new azepinylidenepyridylacetic ester, whose structure has been established unambiguously by a single crystal X-ray diffraction study. This is the first report of a reaction involving both a ring expansion to an azaheptafulvalene and a ring extrusion to a pyridyl ring residue.
