Reaction of the title tropone (3) and 8-bromo compound (19) with o-aminophenol (4) in acetic acid affords the HBr salt of 8-(o-hydroxyanilino)cyclohepta[b][1,4]benzoxazine (21) as the main product, whereas under basic conditions treatment of 19 with 4 results in the formation of mainly 2- and 3-formylphenoxazine. Reaction of 6,8-dibromo compound 20 with 4 produces various tropylium compounds having two annulated heterocycles. Possible reaction pathways involving unusual intramolecular transpositions of heterocycles are discussed.
