The preparation of some homologues of dinitro ortho and para cresols Briggs, Thomas Irving


The ortho and para normal-alkyl-phenols from n-ethyl to n-octyl and ortho and para isobutyl and isoamyl phenols were prepared by the Fries rearrangement method. The para-tertiary-butyl, para-secondary-butyl, para-tertiary-amyl and ortho-tertiary-butyl phenols were prepared by miscellaneous methods. All the phenols were nitrated to give dinitro derivatives. The cyclohexyl-amine, piperidine and morpholine salts were made for all the dinitro-alkyl-phenols prepared.
