The irradiation of the title compounds [(Z)-1] in nitrogen-saturated methanol containing triethylamine (TEA) at room temperature was found to quantitatively afford 2(1H)-benzo[f]quinolinone (2) and 3,4-dihydro-3-(3-methyl-5-substituted 1,2,4-triazol-4-yl)-2(1H)-benzo[f]quinolinone (3) derivatives, which were described as being formed via electron transfer from TEA to the excited-state (E)-1. Analysis of solvent and substituent effects on the composition ratio of 2 to 3 confirmed that this ratio is increased from 0.2 to 9.0 with an increase in the proton-donating ability and polarity of solvent as well as in the electron-withdrawing ability of substituent bonded to the triazole ring.
