Quinoline N-oxide (I) readily reacts in hot acetic anhydride with some O-benzoyl aromatic aldehyde cyanohydrins (Va-d) to produce O-benzoylcyanohydrins (VIa-d) of 2-quinolyl aryl ketones which are easily convertible to the corresponding ketones (VIIa-d) by alkaline hydrolysis. Similar reactions occur also with N-oxides of isoquinoline, pyridine and phenanthridine (II, III and IV). The derivatives of benzaldehyde and p-chloro- benzaldehyde resist the reaction.
