      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      When aromatic acetals in vapour phase were passed over alumina (γ-Al2O3), the product mixture was found to contain ester, ether and aldehyde of aromatic nature. Activatedγ-Al2O3 exhibits Lewis acid-base properties at elevated temperatures. Possible mechanisms for the formation of the above products, consistent with experimental observation have been suggested.
