Tidwell, T. T.Science of Synthesis, (200623393.

Photolysis of benzoic phenylacetic anhydride (9, R1=H) in acetonitrile gives phenylketene (10, R1=H) in 70% yield, as determined by trapping with methanol.[‌38‌] This reaction is proposed to proceed through a Norrish type II process (Scheme 3). Benzoic diphenylacetic anhydride (9, R1=Ph) reacts similarly, giving diphenylketene (10, R1=Ph) in 50% yield.[‌38‌]
