Chemistry of cyclohepta[b][1,4]benzoxazines and their S- and O-analogues as well as of the related compounds without annulated benzene ring is reviewed. Differing from usual, unreactive heterocycle-annulated tropylium compounds, title compounds are usually very reactive, especially towards 1,4-difunctional nucleophiles such as o-phenylenediamine, ethylenediamine and their S- and O-analogues. Reactivities towards alkali and oxidizing agents are comparatively described in view of the difference of the heteroatoms.
