Abstract

Mono and di-halobenzenes and alkoxide ions gave monoalkoxybenzenes, but no phenols, when catalyzed by high molecular weight poly(ethylene glycol)s as phase transfer catalysts. Bromobenzenes were more reactive than chlorobenzenes but gave more side products, and for alcohols the reactivity was primary > secondary > tertiary.
