Definite and conclusive evidence of simultaneous β- and γ-substitution or γ-substitution alone has been obtained in the case of the reactions between (1) orcinol and acetyl chloride; (2) β-orcacetophenone and acetic anhydride; (3) benzoyl chloride and resacetophenone; and (4) acetic anhydride and 4-benzoylresorcinol in presence of anhydrous AlCl3. The constitution of the resulting products have been established by their independent and rational synthesis.
