Reduction of 5-deazaisoalloxazinophanes dFl(n) in which N(3) and O(2′ α) in the 10-(2-hydroxy)phenyl group were linked by a (CH 2)n chain (n = 6,8) resulted in the boat-shaped 1,5-dihydro forms dFlred(n); hydrogen transfer to dFl(n) and from dFlred(n) occurred exclusively at the axial C(5) position.
