This work describes three different strategies to structurally rearrange one 3-alkylidene-2H-1,2-oxazine molecule into three distinct heterocycles using HOTf, propiolic acid, and silica gel, respectively. The mechanisms of these rearrangement reactions involve three independent routes, including (i) Brønsted acid catalysis, (ii) a synergetic action of Brønsted acids and anions, (iii) a surface-directed chemoselectivity.
