Abstract

In continuation of rearrangement reactions of organometallic compounds, it was desirable to ascertain whether R-Metal combinations (free of halogen or other acidic groups) would react after the manner of benzylmagnesium chloride types with compounds like formaldehyde, for example. This last reaction gives not only the normal product (beta-phenylethyl alcohol), but also o-tolyl carbinol. It has been shown that the corresponding organosodium and organolithium compounds behave in a similar manner. Incidentally, it is possible to prepare some organolithium compounds, like phenyl-lithium, very conveniently, in a short time, and in excellent yields in the customary three-necked flasks.
