Syntheses of methyl 3-dialkoxycarbonylmethyl- and -(α,α-dialkoxycarbonylethyl)-2-(2-benzamidophenyl)acrylates from methyl 2-phenyl-3,1-benzoxazepine-5-carboxylate were reported. Treatment of these two kinds of acrylates with base afforded entirely different products. Thus, while the former afforded 2,3-disubstituted indoline, the latter gave the oxindole, exclusively. The stereochemistries of the products as well as the mechanisms for these ring closure reactions are discussed.
