Abstract

The reaction of carbon monoxide with an organolithium compound at −70°C yielded symmetrical ketones.
Benzophenone (55%), 4,4′-ditolyl ketone (50%), di-n-butyl ketone (40%), di-n-amyl ketone (28%) and diisopropyl ketone (30%) were prepared by this new method.
A reaction path for the formation of ketones was discussed.
