Abstract

Abstract The elusive carbon analogue of the Claise rearrangement of phenyl allyl ether has been realized. Under strongly basic conditions in t-butyl alcohol containing potassium t-butylate at 350° for 24 hr, the set of five isometric 1-phenylbutenes is put into thermodynamic equilibrium with the set of three isomeric 1-( o-tolyl)propenes.
