Abstract

The unusual tendency of phthalaldehyde to form cyclic compounds was utilized in an attempt to form completely unsaturated mono- and dinitrogen heterocycles with seven atoms in the ring. This was attempted by using a base-catalysed condensation of phthalaldehyde with urea and acetamide. Though the initial aim of this research was not realized, the products that were obtained were of interest both from a mechanistic point of view and from the fact that they have not been previously prepared. The proof of structure of one of these products is contained in the thesis using, among other techniques, analysis of its infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance spectra. Also, a mechanism by which the products could be formed is proposed.
