Benzazepinones display a wide range of pharmacological activity, and are used for treatment of heart diseases, cancer,and Alzheimer's disease. They are also found in naturally-occurring alkaloids. Furthermore, benzazepinones are used as building blocks for synthesis of benzazepines useful for treatment of various neurological conditions. Structurally analogous dibenzazepinones are also found in pharmaceutically-relevant organic molecules. Here, methods of synthesis of benzazepinones – hydroamination, carbopalladation, amidation, Friedel–Crafts alkylation, rearrangements with cycle enlargement are reviewed.
