That's a good complement to these writeups by the late PsychoChemist:

Nordiazepam (
Nitrazepam (

Here are the above listed articles:


Quinazolines and 1,4-Benzodiazepines. X. Nitro-Substituted 5-Phenyl-1,4-benzodiazepine Derivatives
L. H. Sternbach, R. Ian Fryer, O. Keller, W. Metlesics, G. Sach, N. Steiger
J. Med. Chem. 6, 261-265 (1963) (

The general synthesis of nitro-substituted 1,3-dihydro-5-phenyl-2H-1,4-benzodiazepin-2-ones from aminonitrobenzophenones and the specific synthesis of 1,3-dihydro-7-nitro-5-phenyl-2H-1,4-benzodiazepin-2-ones by direct nitration of the corresponding unsubstituted benzodiaxepinones is described. The position of the nitro group was proved by its replacement by chlorine via a Sandmeyer reaction of the amine obtained by reduction. Alkylation of some of the benzodiazepinones gave the corresponding 1-alkyl derivatives. Mild acid hydrolysis of nitrobenzodiazepinones and 1-alkyl-nitrobenzodiazepinones led to several previously undescribed aminonitrobenzophenones. 2-Amino-5-nitrobenzophenone was converted aia the a-oxime into the corresponding 2-chloromethyl-6-nitro-4-phenylquinazoline 3-oxide and this compound when treated with nucleophilic reagents gave, by a ring expansion, 1,3-dihydro-7-nitro-5-phenyl-2H-1,4-benzodiazepin-2-one 4-oxide. The pharmacological properties of three nitrobenzodiazepine derivatives are reported. These compounds showed a low toxicity combined with sedative, muscle relaxant and anticonvulsant properties.


Quinazolines and 1,4-Benzodiazepines. IV. Transformations of 7-Chloro-2-methylamino-5-phenyl-3H-1,4-benzodiazepine 4-Oxide
L. H. Sternbach, E. Reeder
J. Org. Chem. 26, 4936-4941 (1961) (

7-Chloro-2-methylamino-5-phenvl-3H-1,4-benzodiazepine 4-oxide (I) and its acetyl derivative (II) can be hydrolyzed to 7-chloro-5-phenyl-3H-1,4-benzodiazepin-2(1H)-one 4-oxide (III). Other methods are described for the synthesis of this compound and its conversion into pharmacologically active beneodiazepinones.

1,3-Dihydro-2H-1,4-benzodiazepine-2-ones and Their 4-Oxides
S. C. Bell, T. S. Sulkowski, C. Gochman, S. J. Childress
J. Org. Chem. 27, 562-566 (1962) (

Alcoholic sodium hydroxide converts 6-chloro-2-chloromethyl-4-phenylquinazoline 3-oxide (I) into 7-chloro-5-phenyl-1,3-dihydro-2H-1,4-benzodiazepine-2-one 4-oxide (II). 7-Chloro-5-phenyl-1,3-dihydro-2H-1,4benzodiazepine-2-one (III) was prepared by reduction of II and by several alternate routes. A number of analogs were made.

      Thanks, now we 've got the articles online :-)     

Thanks, now we 've got the articles online smile.

In the future, there is more to come about the zepams.

      offtopic :)     

Rated by me as terrible offtopic!

Sorry, it's not about chemistry...
Only my own opinion.
Flunitrazepame is more dangerous then all opioids all together...

Sorry for all I said above, cause I tried this shit on my own skin...

Why is a reference to the patents of flunitrazepam off-topic?

Pharmacologically speaking, flunitrazepam is a hypnotic - just like nitrazepam, and unlike nordazepam which is a anxiolytic.   Flunitrazepam is more potent (dose being 1 - 2 mg) than nitrazepam (dose = 5 mg) though.

Second, I only answered the question:
Such as a full synthesis Of Flunitrazepam? ;)

If my chemical appropriate answer is ought to be off-topic, why wasn't the above question rated that way to begin with?  It could just as well have saved me the effort to find the information.

Well, I just deleted the post & hope everybody can sleep well now  wink.

i think he was referring to his own post as off topic.
