The conditions of azo-coupling of 2,6-dialkylphenols in aprotonic medium were developed.
The kinetics of the azo-coupling of 2,6-dialkylphenols with p-benzoquinone diazide was studied spectrophotometrically.
The reaction of azo-coupling proceeds through the step of formation of an intermediate quinolide compound, the decomposition of which determines the summary rate of the process.
