The rearrangement of phenacylbenzylaniline to alpha-anilino-beta-phenylpropiophenone, first achieved by T. S. Stevens, has been confirmed, and the reaction conditions more fully investigated. Further proof of rearrangement has been obtained in the identification of beta-phenylpropiophenone as a by-product. Experiments have been carried out with a number of other tertiary amines, and in the case of two, namely, phenaoyl-alpha-phenethylaniline, and phenaoylallylaniline, strong indications of rearrangement have been observed. In the case of the other amines investigated, general decomposition has been found to occur under the reaction conditions employed.
