Using a series of clay based catalysts (KSF, KSF/0, KP10, K10, K0, KS), resorcinol is acylated in 1,2-dichloroethane by phenylacetyl chloride with a heterogeneous catalytic procedure. The yield of 1-(2,4-dihydroxyphenyl)2- phenyl-ethanone is in correlation with the specific surface area of the catalyst.
