Reactions of naphtho[b]cyclopropene with C,N-diphenylnitrone derivatives afforded dihydronaphthoxazine derivatives. The reaction is considered to proceed through a [4π + 2σ]-type cycloaddition process via a zwitter ionic intermediate generated by a rupture of the C-C σ-Bond of the three-membered ring of naphtho[b]cyclopropene caused by a nucleophilic attack of tne nitrone.
