A new mode of 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction with dibenzoylacetylene as dipolarophile was observed. The addition of this dipolarophile to different substituted open chain N-arylnitrones afforded 3-anilino-1,4-diphenylbutane-1,2,4-trione. Its formation by 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction followed by interamolecular rearrangement and ylide decomposition is discussed. On the other hand, the conformationally rigid cyclic nitrones form either 4-oxazoline or enamine compounds.
