Reaction of 3-(4-pyrazolyl)anthranil (5) with phenylzinc chloride in the presence of nickel acetylacetonate gave 4-(2-anilinobenzoyl) pyrazole (6). 3-(4-Isoxazolyl)anthranil (11) gave a mixture of 4-(2-anilinobenzoyl)isoxazole (12) and 1-phenyl-4-quinolone (16). The compounds 6 and 12 were readily transformed to the azidoacetanilides (9 and 15), which were cyclized to 1,4-benzodiazepin-2-ones (10 and 19), respectively, via aza-wittig reaction at room temperature. Treatment of azido derivative (25) with triphenyl phosphine gave the phosphinimine (26), which was eventually cyclized to the 1,4-benzodiazepine (27) in refluxing toluene. In contrast, the phosphinimine (41) prepared from 4-(2-azidoacetamido-3-theonyl)isoxazole (40) failed to cyclize to the condensed thieno-1,4-diazepine (42).
