Imine-enamine tautomerization was observed in methyl valelo-lactim (2) and methyl caprolactim (3), whereas rarely in methyl butyrolactim (1) on NMR. The evidence for the tautomerization was elucidated also by the chemical behaviors of the lactim ethers towards cyclic β-aminoesters such as, 2-carboethoxymethyl piperidine derivatives, which often gave two kinds of products probably resulted from both the imine and the enamine forms. This was applied to a synthesis of the 1,9-diazasteroid.
