Application of Phenylethyl Resorcinol

Preparation of Phenylethyl Resorcinol

0.2 mol of 2,4-diacetoxystyrene was put into a three-necked flask with stirring, 4 mol of benzene was placed in, and also 0.001 mol of p-toluenesulfonic acid was placed in, the temperature level was increased to 80 ° C. as well as refluxed, as well as the temperature was kept for 5 hrs. After that the temperature level was reduced to 50 ° C., 4 mol of methanol was added, the temperature level was raised to 64 ° C. as well as refluxed, and also the temperature was kept for 1 hr. Then, climatic purification was performed to boil down off the solvent. The recurring material in the flask was recrystallized to acquire 32 g of phenethyl resorcinol, which was detected by fluid chromatography, as well as the material was 99.5% and the return was 80%.
