Ramli, Zainab and Nur, Hadi and Chandren, Sheela (2010) Friedel-crafts alkylation of resorcinol over mesoporous alumina loaded with sulfuric acid. International Journal Of Chemical Reactor Engineering, 8 . p. 40918. ISSN 1542-6580
Mesoporous alumina which contains only Lewis acidity was synthesized by sol-gel method and was then impregnated with sulfuric acid to generate Bronsted ¨ acidity. The catalyst was used in Friedel-Crafts alkylation of resorcinol with methyl tert-butyl ether to produce 4-tert-butylresorcinol and 4,6-di-tert-butylresorcinol as the major and minor products respectively. It was demonstrated that Lewis and Bronsted acidities play a synergetic role in this reaction.
