Reaction of 1-carboethoxy-1H-azepine with palladium (II) acetate in chloroform or acetonitrile afforded trans-trans-mucodialdehyde together with ethyl carbamate. On the other hand, the analogous reaction in acetic acid gave 1-carboethoxy-2,3-diacetoxy-2,3-dihydro-1H-azepine. The same reaction but using 1-carboethoxy-1H-1,2-diazepine gave a nitrile derivative via a ring opening.
