Treatment of 2-hydroxyazulene (1a) with 3 equiv. of C5H5N·HBr3 in aqueous THF-AcOH at 0 oC for 1 h afforded 1,1,3-tribromoazulene-2-one (5a). 3-Bromo-1,2-azulenequinone (2a) was obtained by the hydrolysis of 5a in the presence of Ag2O. Annulated compound 6 was readily obtained by the reaction of 2a with o-phenylenediamine.
