Photoirradiation of 2-arylthiazoles derivatives linked with an alkene moiety through a three-atom spacer was investigated. The main products were unexpected tetrahydrofuran-fused thiazepine derivatives with concomitant formation of [2+2] cycloaddition products and regioisomeric thiazoles. The product distribution was little influenced by the reaction conditions and substituents of the substrates.
