Abstract

A kinetic scheme of the reaction between 6-tert-butyl-2-methylphenol and methyl acrylate in the presence of an alkali metal phenoxide has been proposed. The rate constants of the elementary steps describing the catalytic mechanism have been calculated. The reaction gives methyl 3-(5-tert-butyl-4-hydroxy-3-methylphenyl)propionate as the only product (Calkylation). The nature of the metal cation does not affect the reaction mechanism.
