Cyclo-1,8-carbazolylene was found to undergo oxidative rearrangement by oxidation with 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-pbenzoquinone, giving a 9a-substituted carbazol-1-one derivative. This is the first example of a dearomative oxidative rearrangement of a carbazole or aniline derivative. The geometrical and electronic structures were elucidated by X-ray analysis, UV-vis absorption spectroscopy, and DFT calculations.
