Unsaturated azacyclopropane compounds that are three-membered heterocycles of a nitrogen and two carbon atoms.
Azirines are three membered heterocyclic unsaturated compounds containing a nitrogen atom and related to the saturated analogue aziridine. They are highly reactive yet have reported in a few natural products such as Dysidazirine. There are two isomers of azirine: 1H-azirines with a carbon-carbon double bond are not stable and rearrange to the tautomeric 2H-azirine, a compound with a carbon-nitrogen double bond. 2H-Azirines can be considered strained imines and are isolable.
