Abstract

Condensation of 2-(1H-pyrazol-5-yl)phenols with 1-chloro-2-nitrobenzenes under basic conditions in N,N-dimethyl­formamide results in a tandem, atom-economical, aromatic nucleophilic substitution–Smiles rearrangement–denitrocyclization process to provide pyrazolo-fused dibenzo[b,f][1,4]oxazepines as a single regioisomer.
