A catalyst-controlled highly chemoselective and regioselective intramolecular cycloamidation of triazol-1-ylbenzamides toward the synthesis of scarcely known heterocycles is reported. In the presence of a palladium catalyst, this cycloisomerization reaction afforded substituted benzotriazlolodiazepin-7-ones via intramolecular insertion of a palladium into C-C triple bond in a 7-exo-dig way. Alternatively, the use of a silver catalyst in the reaction produced substituted benzotriazolodiazocin-8-ones in a highly regioselective manner through 8-endo-dig intramolecular ring closure.
