providence14 Posted March 29, 2011 Share Posted March 29, 2011 Hey Everyone, Anyone out there have any idea on the mechanism for reacting 2,2-dimethylcyclohexanone with H2SO4 to yield 2,3-dimethylphenol. Once you protonate the ketone and form a benzene ring, how the heck is the methyl moved down to the 3 position? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
