    • Abstract


      The condensation of cresols with acetic, propionic and butyric acids was tried under conditions of Nencki’s reaction employing anhydrous zinc chloride as the condensing agent. Onlyo-cresol gave rise to both theortho- andpara-substituted derivatives, while them- and thep-cresols produced only theortho-substituted products. The yields varied with the duration of heating.
