It is known that phenyl alkyl ethers substitute in the phenyl radical less easily than phenol; nevertheless, phenetol will give a tribromophenyl compound. When the allyl derivative is used, both phenyl and allyl radicals may be involved in the change. Experiments now in progress show that rearrangement of the allyl ether by heat, according to Claisen's method may cause a loss of bromine.
