Effects of a para-substituent in di-o-t-butylphenol on association with t-butanol

  • V. D. Pokhodenko
  • V. S. Kuts


NMR studies reveal a linear correlation between the chemical shift for the OH proton in the phenol and the Hammett σ for the substituent. The degree of association with t-butanol increases with the electron-acceptor affinity of the substituent. There is no fast exchange between the OH groups of the phenol and the alcohol; this is confirmed by SCF and Hückel calculations.
