1-Oxotetrahydro-2-benzazepines from 1-Methyl-3,4-dihydro-5H-2-benzazepines: Synthesis of N-Methyl-7,8,9-trimethoxy-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-2-benzazepine

A new approach to 1-oxo-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-2-benzazepines is described, the key step being the rutheniun catalyzed oxidative cleavage of 1-methylene-2-benzazepine 5 obtained by N-acetylation of the Bischler-Napieralski cyclization product of N-acetyl-3-(3’,4’.5’-trimethoxyphenyl)-propylamine (3). Aromatic bromination instead of benzylic oxidation took place upon irradiation of the 1-oxo-2-benzazepine 8 with visible light in the presence of CaCO3 and NBS.
