A number of dibenzylidenecycloalkanones were prepared by a base condensation reaction of the cycloalkanone with benzaldehyde or a substituted benzaldehyde. The products were then subjected to a mixed hydride reagent (3 AlCl3-1 LiAlH4) to give olefins or tautomeric mixtures depending on the method of reaction.
