Polycyclic tris-anhydrotetramer 6 of o-aminobenzaldehyde was synthesized directly from reduction of o-nitrobenzaldehyde and its structure was determined by X-ray crystallography. This provides a practical synthesis of 6, as opposed to starting from the unstable o-aminobenzaldehyde. The tris-anhydrotetramer 6 is useful for the synthesis of a variety of TAAB-metal complexes.
