Reaction of ketene dimer with benzimidazole in neat condition at room temperature, gave rise to 1-[o-(N-acetoacetylamino)phenyl]-3,5-diacetyl-4-hydroxypyridin-2(1H)-one (III), an adduct of one mole of benzimidazole and three moles of ketene dimer. Hydrolysis of compound III with 10 % hydrochloric acid gave the N-deacetoacetylated product (IV). Heatinq of compound III with 80 % sulfuric acid resulted in the formation of 1-(o-aminophenyl)-5-acetyl-4-hydroxypyridin-2(1H)-one (V). The reaction mechanism is discussed.
