The reaction of 3-phenylpropiolamide with phenylacetamide yielded 2-benzyl-4-phenyl-6-pyrimidone, whilst that of o-chlorophenylpropiolamide with phenylacetamide or p-chlorophenylacetamide yielded the 4-(o-chlorophenyl)pyrimidine-2,6-dione. The reaction products were identified from their spectral analysis.
