    • Abstract


      Cyanoethylation ofp-aminoacetophenone in presence of cuprous chloride has been investigated. Cyanoethylation of hydroxyacetophenones and hydroxybenzaldehydes has also been studied. The products obtained have been hydrolysed to the corresponding acids. The acids on cyclisation have yielded the corresponding ketones.
