6-Monosubstituted 5,6-dihydro-4H-1,2,4,5-oxatriazines (3) undergo ring contraction, via elimination of H2O, to yield the respective 1H-1,2,4-triazoles (4). This transformation is envisaged to proceed via the ring-opened (E)-hydrazonoxime (5) which then suffers dehydrative cyclization. The process is acid-catalyzed and is thermally induced. Apparently, the driving force for this transformation is linked to the aromaticity of the triazole product.
