The effect of a strongly electron - releasing substituent at the 6-position of 1- benzyl-2-tetralones results in regiospecific Beckmann rearrangements from the corresponding oximes. Previous data support that ortho-substituents on the 1-benzyl group display steric controls during this reaction. Data presented herein demonstrate how stereoelectronic controls offered by the methoxyl group can be used for the convenient syntheses of the 2-benzazepinones. A mechanism, supported by molecular modeling calculations, has been proposed for this process.
