Molecular structure of 2,3-dicyano-5,7,7-trimethyl-6,7-dihydro-1H-1,4-diazepine, which was recently used as precursor for pH-sensitive porphyrazine fluorophors (New J. Chem. 2020, DOI: 10.1039/d0nj04388e) was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The obtained structural data confirm the conclusions made based on spectral study and quantum-chemical modelling and evidence that -N= and -NH- groups present in 6,7-dihydro-1H-1,4-diazepine ring can be considered as pyridine- and pyrrole-type nitrogens, and the electronic lone pair of the latter in involved in formation of quasi-aromatic conjugated heterocyclic system.
