    The thermal rearrangement of an N-substituted vinylaziridine to the corresponding Z-allylic amine, i.e. a homodienyl-[1,5]-hydrogen shift was studied at various temperatures in the reange 40 90 oC, and NMR spectroscopy was used to follow the reactiuon. The activation enthalpiies and entropies measured clearly indicate a concerted mechanism for the rearrangement, via a cyclic transition state.
