The aziridinium ylide generated by the intramolecular reaction of a metal carbenoid tethered to a vinylaziridine undergoes [2,3]-Stevens rearrangement to furnish the indolizidine skeleton. It is essential that the correct nitrogen invertomer is used or a competing [1,5]-hydrogen shift predominates. During the preparation of a second system a 'one-pot' acylation-[3,3]-Claisen rearrangement was observed, delivering a seven-membered lactam. (C) 2004 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
