The photochemical behaviour of some 3-acetylamino-5-aryl-1,2,4-oxadiazoles in methanol at 254 nm has been investigated. A photoinduced rearrangement to the corresponding 2-acetylaminoquinazolin-4-one derivatives has been pointed out and explained as proceeding through a preliminary iso-heterocyclic photoinduced rearrangement to the corresponding 3-aroylamino-5-methyl-1,2,4-oxadiazoles,followed by a subsequent photoreaction of the latter. Some mechanistic considerations are reported.
