Some N-substituted tetrahydronicotinamides (1) and dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate (DMAD) gave the dienamines (3) through a known type of carboxamide elimination. However, these compounds further undergo cycloaddition to DMAD and via the intermediate (5) formed the aminopropylbenzenes (7-9) by a trans-elimination. In contrast (1b) with methyl propiolate, along with small amounts of dienamine (4) and aminopropylbenzene (10), gave in 40% yield the tetrahydroazocine (12), thus providing a new route to this class of heterocycles.
