2,4-Diphenylfuran has been obtained from acetophenone and its mixture with aniline, over K-16 catalyst. It has been established that the reaction proceeds through a stage of dypnone formation. When the aniline-acetophenone mixture is used as the starting material, small amounts of 2-phenylindole are formed.
