Abstract

1,2,3,4-Tetrahydro-6- and -7-methoxy-4-oxo-1-(p-tolylsulfonyl)quinolines and 1-ethoxycarbonylmethyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-7-methoxy-4-oxoquinoline have been ring-expanded in two steps to 2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-7- and -8-methoxy-4-oxo-1-(p-tolylsulfonyl)-1H-1-benzazepines and 1-ethoxycarbonylmethyl-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-8-methoxy-4-oxo-1H-1-benzazepine. Redn. of the oximes gives 4-amino-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-7-methoxy-1-(p-tolylsulfonyl)-1H-1-benzazepine, 4-amino-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-8-methoxy-1H-1-benzazepine, and 4-amino-1-ethoxycarbonylmethyl-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-8-methoxy-1H-1-benzazepine. From these, several N-substituted and N,N-disubstituted compds. have been obtained and 3-amino-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1-(p-tolylsulfonyl)-1H-1-benzazepine has been made by similar means. Two routes are described to 2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-8-methoxy-5-oxo-1-(p-tolylsulfonyl)-1H-1-benzazepine which is converted to 2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-8-methoxy-4-methoxyimino-5-oxo-1-(p-tolylsulfonyl)-1H-1-benzazepine and thence to 5-[2-(ethoxycarbonyl)ethynyl]-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-5-hydroxy-8-methoxy-4-methoxyimino-1-(p-tolylsulfonyl)-1H-1-benzazepine and 5-[2-(ethoxycarbonyl)ethyl]-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-5-hydroxy-8-methoxy-4-methoxyimino-1-(p-tolylsulfonyl)-1H-benzazepine. Redn. of 2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-8-methoxy-4-oximino-5-oxo-1-(p-tolylsulfonyl)-1H-1-benzazepine in two steps gives both cis- and trans-4-acetamido-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-5-hydroxy-8-methoxy-1-(p-tolylsulfonyl)-1H-1-benzazepines which are sep. deacetylated and cyclised with Et chloroacetate to cis- and trans-2,3,4,4a,5,6,7,11b-octahydro-9-methoxy-3-oxo-7-(p-tolylsulfonyl)[1,4]oxazino[3,2-d][1]benzazepine. By similar methodol. cis- and trans-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-5-hydroxy-8-methoxy-4-propionamido-1-(p-tolylsulfonyl)-1H-1-benzazepines have been obtained, sepd. and the latter reduced to trans-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-5-hydroxy-8-methoxy-4-(n-propylamino)-1-(p-tolylsulfonyl)-1H-1-benzazepine. In three steps the latter is converted to trans-2,3,4,4a,5,6,7,11b-octahydro-9-methoxy-4-(n-propyl)-7-(p-tolylsulfonyl)[1,4]oxazino[3,2-d][1]benzazepine.
