The photochemistry of 2-dialkylaminophenoxaz-3-ones was investigated. In general these compounds were found to be more photo-reactive than the corresponding monoalkylaminophenoxaz-3-ones. The 2-dimethylaminophenoxaz-3-one underwent photochemical demethylation. Irradiation of the 2-polymethyleneiminophenoxaz-3-ones gave different products depending upon the size of the polymethyleneimine ring. Propyl-, pentyl-, and hexyl-methyleneimine phenoxazones gave novel pentacyclic dicarbomethoxy dimethyl alkyleneoxazolino phenoxazines. Stable dihydrophenoxaz-3-ones were obtained by the reduction of butyl-, pentyl-, and hexyl-methyleneimine phenoxazones.
