Condensation of isatoic anhydride with phenols, followed by treatment of the resulting aryl anthranylates (4) with chloroacetyl chloride gives aryl N-chloroacetylanthranylates (5). Their uv-irradiation results in photo-Fries rearrangement, to afford benzophenones (6). Direct treatment of the latter with ammonia gives rise to 1,3-quinazolines (7); by contrast, treatment of 6 with potassium iodide and subsequently with ammonia leads to 1,3-dihydro-2H-1,4-benzodiazepin-2-ones (1).
