The carbethoxylation product of p-aminoacetophenone with diethyl carbonate by means of sodium amide has been proved to be ethyl p-acetylphenylcarbamate instead of ethyl p-aminobenzoylacetate. Thus the amino group was shown to be more active than the methyl ketonic. group tow ard carbethoxylation. Attempt at further carbethoxylation of this carbamate were unsuccessful.
