The synthesis and thermal decomposition of 3-azido-4-(4-methylcyclohexa-3,6-dione-1,4-dienyl)1,2-naphthoquinone (7) is reported. This is the first example of the thermal chemistry of an azido-o-quinone and is shown to undergo facile ring closure to the carbazolebisquinone 9. Analogous ring closures were observed for the hydroquinone derivatives of 7, i.e., 10a and 10b.
