When a ligroin solution of phenyl isopropyl, isobutyl or isoamyl ether was shaken with dry potassium carbonate, we obtained crystalline products that were readily soluble in water to give alkaline liquids. When dilute acid was used, the corresponding ether was set free. The analyses of these products indicated that one atomic weight of potassium is combined with two molecular proportions of ether. So far, no such combinations have been obtained with the carbonates of lithium and sodium. Tests will be made with rubidium and caesium carbonates later
