A new reaction of ene-1, 1-diamines with benzaldehyde and its derivatives to give substituted cinnamoyl amides has been investigated. The related 0,N-ene system was also used in a similar manner. In this condensation, the presence of an orthohydroxyl group on the aromatic ring led to the formation of the coumarin skeleton. The preparation of diene-1,1-diamines has been accomplished and their reaction with benzaldehyde to give predominantly 5-phenylpenta-cis-2-trans-4-dienoyl amides was studied. The structures of the resulting isomers are discussed and a possible mechanism of reaction is proposed.
