The reaction of 1-ethoxycarbonyl-1H-azepine (1) with 3,4,5,6-tetrachloro-1,2-benzoquinone at room temperature afforded a [6+4] type cycloadduct 3 as a major product in addition to two [4+2] type cycloadducts 4 and 5. Upon heating, 3 rearranged to 5 in a fairly good yield. In the same reaction with 1-ethoxycarbonyl-1H-1,2-diazepine (2), a [4+2] type cycloadduct 6 was formed. The low electron density at the 2 and 7 positions of 1 is considered to be one reason for the formation of the [6+4] type cycloadduct 3.
