The title compound, N
-(2-hydroxy-1,1-dimethylethyl)-3-methylbenzamide was synthesized by reacting 3-methylbenzoyl chloride or 3-methylbenzoic acid with 2-amino-2-methyl-1-propanol. In the present report, the synthesized target compound was fully characterized by various spectroscopic methods (1
H NMR, 13
C NMR, IR, GC-MS), its composition confirmed by elemental analysis, and its structure determined and confirmed by X-ray analysis. The importance of this compound lies in its possession of an N
-bidentate directing group. Such a structural motif is potentially suitable for metal-catalyzed C–H bond functionalization reactions.
