The reaction of pyridine N-oxide with metal ketyls of benzophenone was studied. It is shown that diphenyl(2-pyridyl)carbinol N-oxide is formed with the lithium and sodium derivatives of benzophenone, whereas diphenyl(2-pyridyl)carbinol is formed with the potassium derivative of benzophenone. Diphenyl(2-pyridyl)carbinol N-oxide is obtained in lower yields in the reaction of pyridine N-oxide with benzophenone dianions. Pyridine and 4,4′- and 2,2′-dipyridyls are simultaneously formed in all of the reactions.
