One-step vapor-phase synthesis of 2-methyl-1-naphthol from 1-tetralone
A one-step reaction scheme is proposed for prepn. of 2-methyl-1-naphthol from 1-tetralone. The process includes two fixed-bed reactors in line or a single reactor with a double-layered or mixed catalytic bed. The main advantage of the proposed scheme is to avoid the intermediate sepn. and purifn. steps. [on SciFinder (R)]
