Unformatted text preview: CYCLIZATION In an acylation reaction which gives a mixture of isomeric ketones, the proportion of these isomers can sometimes be altered more or less by changing (a) the solvent, (6) the temperature, and (c) the entire method of acylation. To what extent the proportion of products may be altered, if at all, by such experimental changes cannot be predicted. The influence of the above factors on the course of the reaction has been demonstrated for intermolecular acylation. Changing the solvent from benzene to nitrobenzene in the Friedel-Crafts acetylation of naphthalene makes it possible to obtain principally the /3-isomer instead JM Schroeter, Miiller, and Huang, Ber., 62, 645 (1929). 236 Radcliffe, Sherwood, and Short, J.
