Thermal rearrangement of 2-(cyclohexen-1-yl)- and 2-(cyclopenten-1-yl)-2H-azirines, bearing a methyl or a phenyl group at the 2-position of cycloalkenes, was compared with those of corresponding acyclic and benzofuranylazirines. Suppression of the cyclization into pyrrole in favor of pyridine and azepine formations from the azirines having cyclic unsaturation is explained by the strain of fused 2H-pyrrole and the electronic character of vinyl nitrene intermediates.
