Ring transformation of the 3-quinoxalinyl-1,5-benzodiazepine hydrochloride (2) gave novel 3-(benzimidazol-2-yl-methylene)-2-oxo-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoxaline hydrochloride (3a), whose treatment with 5% NaOH afforded the free base (4a). Compounds 3a and 4a were converted into the 2,3-fused quinoxalines (6 and 8) via the oxime (5) and ketone (7), respectively.
