To a stirred solution of 4,5-di[(E)butylidene]-1-methylazepane (346, 0.111 g, 0.50 mmol) and boron trifluoride diethyl etherate complex (0.30 mL, 2.0 mmol)  in dichloromethane (1.0 mL), 4-phenyl-4,5-dihydro-3H-1,2,4-triazole-3,5-dione (100 mg, 0.59 mmol) in THF (3.0 mL) at – 78 °C was added.  The mixture was warmed to room temperature, stirred for 2 hours and quenched with a saturated solution of NaHCO3 (20.0 mL).  The product was extracted into diethyl ether (3 x 50 mL), the combined organic layer washed with water (3 x 50 mL), brine (50.0 mL), dried over MgSO4, filtered and the solvent removed under reduced pressure.  Radial chromatography (SiO2, 0-100 % Et2O:petroleum including 5 % Et3N) afforded the title compound as a viscous yellow oil (240 mg,  0.54 mmol, 54 %).
