Besides the reactions which are typical of di-aldehydes, o-phthalal-dehyde undergoes many atypical reactions. It was the aim of this research to investigate the reaction of o-phthalaldehyde with some primary diamides; i. e. urea, thiourea, oxamide, and malonamide were employed. In particular a definitive sturcture proof of the urea-o-phthalaldehyde product was attempted. There is evidence to indicate that the product is 7-dioxa-l, 5-diazo-2, 8: 4, 6-dibenzobicyclo [3.3.l] nonane-9-one. In this paper, evidence for the proposed structure is presented, an alternate structure is considered, and a mechanism by which this product might be formed is proposed. Also the reaction products of the other previously mentioned diamides are briefly discussed.
