This ketimine has been prepared through the condensation of furonitrile with magnesium phenyl bromide, followed by treatment with ice and ammonium chloride at about -15 degrees C. The hydrochloride, a white solid, is rather quickly hydrolyzed to the corresponding ketone, benzoyl furane. The velocity of this hydrolysis and the basic strength of the free ketimine base are determined.
