The structure of the azatropolone methyl ether [7-(4’-bromophenyl)-4-ethoxycarbonyl-3-methoxy-6-phenyl-2H-azepin-2-one] was determined by X-ray analysis using the heavy atom method. The result indicated that the azatropolone nucleus is not planar and has a chirality. The structures of solvolytic rearrangement products of azatropolones were also established by X-ray analyses as pyridine-2-carboxylates.
