By the Nencki process, 2-stearyl-, 2-palmityl-, and 2-lauryl-1-naphthols have been prepared. These hydroxy ketones have been brominated, nitrated, reduced by the Clemmensen’s method, and subjected to the Kostanecki Reaction, with a view to instituting a comparison with 2-acetyl-1-naphthol, the properties of which have been already studied and described.
