The Hel photoelectron spectra of benzamide (1), 2‐hydroxybenzamide (salicylamide, 2), N‐phenylacetamide (acetanilide, 3), N‐(4‐hydroxyphenyl) acetamide (paracetamol, 4), and N‐(4‐ethoxyphenyl) acetamide (phenacetine, 5) have been recorded and analyzed. A tactical approach similar to the composite molecule analysis of benzoic acid derivatives (T. Meeks, A. Wahlborg and S. P. McGlynn, J. Electron Spectrosc. 22, 43 (1981) was used to determine the electronic structure of 1–5. The interaction of the benzene ring with the amidic group and the role of the benzenoid moiety in the biological activity of these compounds is emphasized.
