Irradiation of (Z)-N-substituted benzoyl-α-dehydrophenylalanines in methanol with Pyrex-filtered light was found to selectively give 1-azetine derivatives, which may be derived from 1,3-acyl migration of the excited-state (E)-isomer, whereas no 1,5-acyl shift of the (Z)-isomer occurred owing to the stereoelectronic effects of the bulky aromatic acyl substituent.
