An effective solvent- and catalyst-free method was introduced for synthesis of symmetrical N, N’-alkylidene bisamides as high usage compounds in organic chemistry. In order to show the generality, the synthesis was done with various benzamides and aldehydes to obtain various derivatives in high yields.
