Diazotization of anthranilic acid produces a diazonium salt which can lose nitrogen and carbon dioxide to produce benzyne. Evidence for this rather unlikely looking intermediate is provided by the fact that it can be trapped in a Diels-Alder reaction. The benzyne intermediate also appears in the aromatic substitution reactions.
