Photoirradiation of a heterocyclic cage compound, 2,7-dihydroazepine derivative with a low pressure mercury lamp afforded a 2,3-dihydroazepine derivative. This reaction was influenced by the solvent used. On the other hand, the analogous photoirradiation of the 2,3-dihydroazepine derivative gave a 1,2-dihydroaniline derivative. An presence of triplet sensitizer promoted the reaction.
