Dibenzosuberenone (5H-dibenzo[a,d]cyclohepten-5-one) was reduced to the corresponding alcohol by sodium borohydride/MeOH and converted to the corresponding 5-chloro compound by thionyl chloride/benzene, treatment of which with CuCN/toluene gave the corresponding nitrile. Hydrolysis by ethanolic KOH yielded the corresponding amide, cytenamide (5H-dibenzo[a,d]cycloheptene-5-carboxamide).
