Abstract

The reaction of phenol with undecan-1-ol and dodecan-1-ol respectively was investigated in the presence of p-toluenesulphonic acid to get the corresponding alkylated phenols. The effects of the variation of different reaction parameters viz. temperature, molar ratio of phenol to undecan-1-ol and dodecan-1-ol respectively, amount of p-toluenesulphonic acid, addition of time and stirring of time on the reaction were studied and optimum conditions of the reaction were determined.
